How sort files?

Post by aleomark » Thu Apr 07, 2011 4:16 pm

Hi guys, I've everything working perfect, using these:

-IDE-EXI Adapter
-12V DC 4-Pin Molex External Power Supply Adapter
-Kingwin ADP-06 SATA to IDE Bridge Board Adapter
-Samsung 1TB 7200rpm 3.5" SATA HD103UJ
-Swiss 0.1 - revision 39

In that HDD I've all the NGC releases in NTSC USA and also the exclusives PAL games. There are a lot of isos (more than 600) and I find out that swiss arrange them by date of creation, and no alphabetically, and also you only can navigate up or down one by one game, is there a way right now to arrange them alphabetically and jump faster in navigation? if isn't hope next version have that option, see ya!

this is not yet implemented, make a post in the swiss feature request thread: ... f=25&t=406
please search before you ask - a lot has been discussed already!
(or use google with " *term*")

we also have a wiki filled with knowledge

if it's a FAT/NTFS file system on your disk, and you are willing to use something like cygwin and/or linux, you can try something like this:

find /path/to/you/files/ -type f -print0 | sort | xargs -0 touch

the first part gets all the files, recursively in that folder, the second part should sort the output and xargs will "touch" the files (to update their time) in order...
that should do it. I'm not sure if the sort will work though, as it's printing with a null char to separate the files...
