    Its intuitive that SPECIFIC_TYPES refer to the “file type” from the file name. The –help gives no details about where these files will go if a SPECIFIC_FOLDER is not named.

    Also, it would be nice if one got a report or histogram of the various file types that appear in the folder getting processed.

    Also, it might be nice if one could name a target folder, eg, ~/myClassified, where all processed folders get created and the classified files get copied.

    Your title, “How to Automatically …” lead me to expect that I would learn how to cause ‘classifier’ to run whenever I added files into a folder or connected a USB stick or drive. Sadly, the article did not make any mention of “automaticaly” doing anything.

    I did find ‘classifier’ useful and interesting and will likely find ways to deployit on my writer’s laptop.

    Thanks for the article,
