[vox] [fwd] Re: [svlug] Script to split a large directory into smaller directories

I was mentioning this thread at Crepeville last night.  I checked back
this morning, and it looks like someone's written something or two ;^)

(The objective is to split directories for burning to DVD, but NOT break
individial files into pieces; simply move the entire file onto the
'next disc' if it can't fit.)

I should have been spending time working on something that will make me
money so I can pay the stack of bills on my desk, but it was fun,
regardless.  The script can be downloaded from:
