Idea: comparing SFV
« on: July 03, 2008, 01:16:41 PM »
I'd like to propose an idea to arrange a directory structure (by moving and matching mostly) according to a sfv file (created with Bradford Smith's 'Easy SFV Creator' for example.)

Can anybody see any advantages in this? It's readable, managable, small, and potentially (inter app.) compatible for for example file comparison use.

Yours,
basc

Dear Coding Snacks,

Sorry for bringing this out on top.
Concerning my language, this idea needs explaining. This is a practical example of a running programme, explained by its output:

Looking for matches from 'filedirectorystructure.sfv' in %drive%
Appending unmatched files to 'unmatched.sfv'
Moving matched files to %drive%%path%
Moving matched files to %drive%%path%, file exists,
  appending to 'duplicates.sfv' with filedate
  (and any other file info in the comment in the future?)

Neat eh? I hope you like it. Of course, it is on that basis if you decide you go along with it or not. This is unconditional.

Yours,
Bas

'filedirectorystructure.sfv' (the way you want it) to clean on the inorderness of:
somebody's computer (%drive%) e:\dir1\dir2\fileX.doc
                              e:\dir1\dir3\image.jpg
                         %drive%%path%file4%extension%
                              e:\dir1\fileZ.odf
                              e:\dir1\dir3\fileZ-modified.odf


Source code files could be even better treated with this (such a) utility..

I've actually written an SFV utility for my own use so something like this wouldn't be too hard to do.  I'll see what I can come up with for you.
