What is ComicSort, and what does it do?
ComicSort helps you organize files that have been downloaded
from Usenet into subdirectories.
Once you have downloaded several nice comicscans from a newsgroup
you notice that all these files have been dumped into one directory
and the real work starts: Sorting the comics.
ComicSort sorts the files in a directory you select to different
subdirectories based on their filenames. Corresponding checksum
files (md5, sfv, csv) files will be added to the correct directories
too. This saves you a lot of time cleaning out this unorganised
Just select a directory and press the button and comicsort will
move all files in that directory to appropriate subdirs (creating
them as needed). If a file already exists in that subdir, the file
is not moved. File attributes are not changed when moving the files.
How to Use ComicSort
When you start ComicSort you see a simple explorer window.
You can then browse to a directory of your choice where the files
are located you want to sort. [middle button]
You can set some options for sorting and reporting in the options
menu. You can also save the options and create a context menu entrie
for ComicSort, so that you can launch it when right-clicking
on a folder. [upper right button]
You can also let ComicSort parse through all subfolders of
the selected folder and run CRC checks on all files present there
if possible. [lower right button]

How does it do what it does?
ComicSort will put files from a single directory into newly
created subdirectories in a relatively smart way in 2 steps:
If wanted, ComicSort will read any CRC files and look for
files listed and put those files together into one subdirectory
for each CRC file.
ComicSort will go through the listed files and based on similar
filenames it will put files together into subdirectories. Since
filenames and numbering conventions vary a lot this is less powerfull
than step one, but it can still help.
Optionally CRC files can be launched to check the sorted files
for corruption by externam program (ComicSort does check for
bad CRC itself too), and a list of missing files can be generated.
See version information for details about the program options.
