Subject [greenstone-users] Extracting date from foldername
I have a bunch of documents stored in folders based on there year of
publication. Can anyone think of an easy way to automatically extract
that as date metadata for the files in the folder? There are a lot of
years between 1841-2006, so I don't want to do it manually...

I guess I could write a perl script to create metadata.xml files? Any
other suggestions?
