Automating command; extracting files from folders and copying them into a single fold
- Rep Power
I'm running Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.8) and I want to use the Terminal to help automate this tedious and laborious command for me:
I need to extract all of the .m4p files in my "iTunes Music" folder which reside in folders of the artist, and then subfolders for the albums and then copy those .m4p files to a single folder elsewhere. I also need to exclude the folders "Movies" and "TV Shows" from the copying process.
Would someone be able to educate me as to how I would go about automating such a task?
