Why was the level letter removed from mp3 file names?

August 07, 2009, 08:04 PM posted in General Discussion

The A/B/C/D/E/F in the filename of newbie / elementary / intermediate / upper intermediate / advanced / media are missing in the latest lessons.

This makes it hard to determine the category by the filename (which I currently rely on for my perl script that sorts out my downloaded lessons).

Any particular reason for this change?

Wouldn't it be easy for you to add that letter yourself when you save a new download?

Possibly. But I also use a perl script to download the latest lessons in a batch job :)

It is quite convenient when you have large directory of files to be able to sort by filename to group the lessons by level.

I was more curious if this was intentional or not.

Could you give me a copy of that perl script? :D

This only seems to be a problem with 1219-1223.
