#################################################################
# Initial Copy, Part 1: run on PC, in Terminal or other, with:
#
#     bash initial-copy-part1-pc.sh
#
# Run this from any folder; it uses paths set in config-pc.txt,
# and finds sourced files in its own folder automatically.
#
# Step runtimes are shown in the console after step completion.  
# Step outputs go to files in $L; watch with 'tail -f $L/file'.
#
# Coding note: this keeps the content zip on the PC as long as
# possible for speed; it's still on PC for the to-proxy unzip.
# This may be trivial for fast SSDs, but USB is still slower.
#
# Coding note: to shorten paths in zipfiles and hence on unzips,
# this can either cd to the content's folder, or use ziptools' 
# '-zip@.' arg to strip the path leading to the zipped item.
# The former shortens ziptools output, but its state is tricky.
#
# Coding note: step 2 could use Mergeall's cpall.py instead of
# ziptools' zip-extract.py; both copy from PC to proxy drive.  
# In testing, however, a 210G content folder of 180k items 
# copied from PC to SSD in 14 minutes with cpall, but just 
# under 13 minutes with zip-extract when the zipfile is on PC. 
# Hence, unzipping is faster, most likely because it opens 
# just one input file, the zip; cpall must open 180k.
#
# Caveat: this script requires space for both content and its
# uncompressed zip on the proxy - essentially twice the size 
# of content.  If space is tight, manually move the zip to
# the phone, before copying content to the proxy drive. 
#
# Caveat: it may be useful to make runtime reports optional, 
# but a simple time=(time|'') and $time invokes a different time.
# Bash starts to break down at this point (a Py coding may help).
#
# See _README.html for license, attribution, and more docs.
