mkdir_heute - create and find directories interactive
mkdir_heute mkdir_heute --basedir=~/archive mkdir_heute --listlines=15 --columns=80
This documentation refers to version v1.0.0.
This script scans a basedir (~/A) for directories named YYYY/MM/DD where YYYY, MM and DD are numbers corresponding to a year, month, day of month and prints them on STDERR.
The script returns the choosen directory on STDOUT and may be used in a shell alias like this:
alias cdheute='cd `mkdir_heute`'

When invoked you may
With this argument it is possible to redirect the script to another base directory under which it scans for project descriptions to display. A new directory would be created below this directory.
mkdir_heute --basedir=~/archive mkdir_heute -b ~/archive
Limit the displaywidth to the given number of columns.
mkdir_heute --columns=80 mkdir_heute -c 80

mkdir_heute --listlines=21 mkdir_heute -l 15

This happened to me especially on elder systems when invoked via backtics such as
although the program works fine when invoked directly.
One workaround is to install the program resize which comes on Debian GNU Linux within the package xutils.
If you can't install the program resize, you could disable Term::ReadKey at program startup like this
cd `mkdir_heute --notermreadkey`
