Right now, the algorithm that you use to create the
base filename is rather nifty, but with a few
drawbacks. So, I think it could use a little bit of
If I have a few files, where only the first character
is identical, the base filename has a bad habit of
creating a short, 1 character filename. (e.g.
01-track1.mp3, 02-track2.mp3, 03-track3.mp3 ... base
filename will end up as "0" which isn't very useful and
would be better if it would use the parent folder name)
Off-hand, I would say that if the base filename ends up
as less then 3 characters, it should consider using the
parent folder name instead. (Right now, the algorithm
does this when none of the files share a common prefix.)
A second suggestion for the algorithm is that the base
filename should not end in a space or underscore.
(e.g. files that are named prefixA_01.mp3,
prefixA_02.mp3 generate a base filename of "prefixA_"
when the trailing underscore might be better off
dropped from the name)
