Not sure if this is inline w/ the purpose/direction of this forum, and if Admin/Sysop yanks it - NP....
I was googling/searching/hunt'n'pecking a way to "clean up" my comics files, and almost universally "ZenCBR" is mentioned....
my only problem with that is that it is a "windows" only app.
(my server farm or weed patch - - is all itty bitty ARM boxen... Pogo Plugs,Seagate GoFlex, Raspberry Pis, and so on..I think there is one intel box w/ Ubuntu - everyone else is Debian Jessie, or Embedded Linux (MontaVista?)
workstations in the house are all Macs, Android phones/tablets, iPhones/iPad, ChromeOS, and whatever my son is running on "his" beastie this week...
The author has posted the Source, and declared it FOSS! (this is a good thing)
Unfortunately, the author, Shannon Larrat, passed away 16 March 2013... (almost never a good thing).... (if you don't have a copy, you may want to get one soon if you are interested..)
(who knows how long it will remain online...)
So, I am thinking about rewriting the app. At this point maybe as a set of Bash scripts, or Java like Ubooquity, my son suggested Go, or python- (which would run on more than Linux boxen).
For those who have used it, what features/functions should it have?
my goals so far -
make it modular,
(each menu option can be simply "dropped" in or "pulled" out w/out major headaches)
attempt OS agnosticism...
(write once, run anywhere - - <snerk> )
avoid GUI, keep it text - (simpler, potentially faster),
SPEED - - - make each function go as fast as possible... or faster
SIZE - - KEEP IT SMALL (both code and memory footprint)
(is this a waste of time, is there another program that does what ZenCBR does ?)
