|path||Atop level directory name under which all
files of interest are stored. If the entry contains
'/'characters, it describes a multiple level directory
structure. Each level may be a perl pattern that doesn't
contain '/' characters, which matches the path from the root directory
of the drive, down to the actual files to be copied. Note that each
pattern for each directory should be "anchored" with a leading ^ and
trailing $ to ensure that the whole directory name is matched, if that
is the intention (and it generally should be).
And the reason to use / to divide the patterns is that it is a character than is illegal in file names, it is the alternate path separator on Windows, besides \, and \ gets used in lots of regular expressions, so using / for the separator makes things easier.
|file||A perl pattern describing the names of the files of interest.|
|extraname||A text string that is included as part of the name of the renamed files.|
|sequence||No value. The existance of the keyword flags that a sequence number should be included as part of the name of the renamed files.|
|noclock||No value. The existance of the keyword flags that there is no timestamp on or in the files, due to the lack of a clock on the device. The date the files are copied is included in the name, in lieu of the usual timestamp. Generally, to obtain uniqueness, it is good to use the sequence keyword along with the noclock keyword.|
|extrapath||No value. The existance of the keyword flags that the last component of the path should be used as a newly created directory in the target directory for the files copied for this configuration.|
|ext||A text string that is included as part of the name of the extrapath when it is used. Can be used to identify particular cameras if multiple cameras of different types are used.|
|pre-rename||If no rename rule is specified, the following extended
Perl substitution pattern is used:
In other words, the root is replaced with the date-time and id, and the the extension is lowercased. Various options adjust this basic pattern, such as sequence, annotation, and extraname adjust that substitution in various ways.
pre-rename allows a device-specific opportunity to rework the names before the standard substitution is applied. post-rename allows a device-specific opportunity to adjust the names after the standard substitution is applied. This syntax here is the match pattern, then a / character, then the replacement pattern. The leading and trailing / for the Perl substitution syntax are optional.
|thumbpath||An adjustment to the path where pictures are found to obtain the path where thumbnails are found. This only exists to support the Vivitar Vivicam 2800, among cameras I have seen. Perhaps other models used a similar filesystem. The only support for thumbnails, if they exist, is deleting them. Thumbnails can be regenerated in a more appropriate size and quality on the computer. If this rule isn't good enough for some camera, additional rules will have to be invented.|
|path||Similar to path for devices, but describes the file structure from the root directory of the wallet to the top level of the saved device file structures. Hence the complete path to the files is composed of (wallet path)/(device path).|
