UPDATE-MUSIC-SYMLINKS(User Contributed Perl DocumentatUPDATE-MUSIC-SYMLINKS(1)

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

SYNOPSIS
       update-music-symlinks [-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.

       WARNING:	Directories that the link farm is created in are deleted
       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
       -v  Verbose

       -q  Quiet (no output). This is the default

       -h  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 # 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 "Dir: " 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
