Default Bug#476340: ITP: datapacker -- Tool to pack files into minimum number of CDs/DVDs/etc

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: John Goerzen <jgoerzen@complete.org>

* Package name : datapacker
Version : 1.0.0
Upstream Author : John Goerzen <jgoerzen@complete.org>
* URL : http://software.complete.org/datapacker
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: Haskell
Description : Tool to pack files into minimum number of CDs/DVDs/etc
datapacker is a tool to group files by size. It is
designed to group files such that they fill fixed-size containers
(called "bins") using the minimum number of containers. This is
useful, for instance, if you want to archive a number of files to CD
or DVD, and want to organize them such that you use the minimum
possible number of CDs or DVDs.
.
In many cases, datapacker executes almost instantaneously. Of
particular note, the hardlink action can be used
to effectively copy data into bins without having to actually copy
the data at all.
.
datapacker is a tool in the traditional Unix style; it can be used in
pipes and call other tools.
