Subject: Re: building m3u-playlists from bash in unix
Date: 2003-10-02

You can pipe it through 'sed' - it's got a nice search/replace function:
find ~/Music/ -type f -name \*.mp3 | sed 's/Users\/svante\/Music/A-C/' >playlist.m3u

(the '/' acts as a separator in 's/search-for/replace-with/', so it has to
be escaped with '\' in the actual search string.)
