NAME

update-music-symlinks - maintain a directory of symlinks to music

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

<B>update-music-symlinksB> [-v] [-q] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

update-music-symlinks creates and maintains a link farm pointing to all your music in various places. If you have music spread over multiple disks/partitions, or distributed over various directories, this enables you to browse it all in a single tree.

A config file .music-symlinks is used to specify where to find music and where to link it. See below for the file format.

<B>WARNING:B> Directories that the link farm is created in are <B>deletedB> first. Just in case, the directories are scanned and the program is aborted if anything is found in there other than files and symlinks.

OPTIONS

<B>-vB> Verbose
<B>-qB> Quiet (no output). This is the default
<B>-hB> Show a brief usage message

CONFIGURATION

The configuration for update-music-symlinks is stored in $HOME/.music-symlinks.

The format is simple. Lines starting with <B>#B> are comments. Blank lines are ignored.

To specify a directory to create links in, start a line with Dir: (the space is important) then the name, eg:



 Dir: /home/ianb/music/albums



All non-comment lines up to the following "<B>Dir: B>" line are treated as directories to create links to within that directory.

EXAMPLE

A complete example .music-symlinks follows:



 # beware, /home/ianb/music/albums will be deleted!    
 Dir: /home/ianb/music/albums
 /home/ianb/music/essential
 /home/ianb/music/cache
 /home/ianb/music/cut/albums
 /mnt/bigdisk/music/albums

 # beware, /home/ianb/music/tracks will also be deleted.
 Dir: /home/ianb/music/tracks
 /mnt/bigdisk/tracks
 /home/ianb/music/cut/tracks



ENVIRONMENT
