Example

Classify by Date:

classifier -dt

Example

Classify files of directory '/home/source' and put them in location '/home/dest':

classifier -d /home/source -o /home/dest

Note: If -d (source directory) is given without -o (output) directory, this will classify the files of source directory Eg:
classifier -d /home/source'
This classifies the directory /home/source.

View the CONFIG, how files will be sorted

classifier -t

Edit the CONFIG, to set up manual settings for classification

classifier -et

Reset the CONFIG file

classifier -rst
