Hi,

I'm pleased to announce the first release of datapacker.

datapacker is a tool to pack files into a minimum number of CDs, DVDs,
or any other arbitrary bin.  It groups file by size.  It is designed
to group files such that they fill fixed-size containers (called
"bins") using the minimum number of containers. This is useful, for
instance, if you want to archive a number of files to CD or DVD, and
want to organize them such that you use the minimum possible number of
CDs or DVDs.

In many cases, datapacker executes almost instantaneously. Of
particular note, the hardlink action can be used to effectively copy
data into bins without having to actually copy the data at all.

datapacker is a tool in the traditional Unix style; it can be used in
pipes and call other tools.

datapacker is also available on Hackage.
