2000AD Prog replacement

Replace 2000AD Prog with 2000 AD.

for f in *AD\ Prog*; do mv -v -- "$f" "${f%%AD Prog*} AD ${f#*AD Prog }"; done

Move file into folder

Create a folder for each file based on the first part of the filename of a .pdf before the hyphen, and move the file in to the respective named folder.

root@LazyLibrarian:/mnt/LazyLibrarian # nano
for f in **.pdf; do d=${f%% –*}; mkdir -p "$d" &&  mv "$f" "$d"; done

root@LazyLibrarian:/mnt/LazyLibrarian # chmod +x

Execute by placing the file inside unsorted magazine folder, then do ./ and let it work it’s magic.

Then move these folders into your Magazine folder, and hit Library Scan.

Is it a real hyphen?

Check if the - (above) is really a real hyphen.

root@LazyLibrarian:/mnt/LazyLibrarian # printf '–' | od -tx1 -An
