       dirsplit - 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
       handled this way (see various filesystem exploration modes).
