splits directory into multiple with equal size
dirsplit [options] < directory | content-list-file >
displit is designed to for a simple purpose: convert a directory with many multiple files (which are all smaller than a certain medium, eg. DVD) and "splits" it into "volumes", looking for the optimal order to get the best space/medium-number efficiency. The actual action is either adding the files to mkisofs catalogs or real moving of files into new directories (or creating links/symlinks). The method is not limited to files, whole directories can also be han‐ dled this way (see various filesystem exploration modes).
