Usage

Copy one file to 'mybucketname' on S3. On S3 the file is saved using the full path in its name

    $ heirloom --bucket myS3bucketname --input /Users/brian/Pictures/CA_1920x1080_05.jpg

Copy one file to 'mybucketname' on S3 but strip off 2 levels of the path.

    # save to S3 as /Pictures/CA_1920x1080_05.jpg
    $ heirloom --bucket myS3bucketname --input /Users/brian/Pictures/CA_1920x1080_05.jpg --strip 2

Copy one file to 'mybucketname' on S3 but strip off 2 levels of the path, plus prepend a new root path

    # save to S3 as /SomewhereElse/Pictures/CA_1920x1080_05.jpg
    $ heirloom --bucket myS3bucketname --input /Users/brian/Pictures/CA_1920x1080_05.jpg --strip 2 --prepend '/SomewhereElse'

Want to copy all your .jpg images in your Pictures folder?

Just use unix "find" command and pipe to heirloom

Find *.jpg (case insensitive)

    $ find /Users/brian/Pictures -iname "*.jpg" -exec heirloom --bucket myS3bucketname --input \{\} \;

Find by multiple extensions (case insensitive)

    $ find /Users/brian/Pictures -iname "*.jpg" -o -iname "*.mov" -o -iname "*.jpeg" -o -iname "*.gif" -o -iname "*.png" -exec heirloom --bucket myS3bucketname --input \{\} \;

Find all files in the folder

    $ find /Users/brian/Pictures -exec heirloom --bucket myS3bucketname --input \{\} \;

Note that you should use an absolute path for "find" so that it includes an absolute path in the results.

The filename and path are used for the full name on S3.
