I have 500+ MP3 files of the old radio show "The Whistler". The comment field is written as follows:
The Whistler: MM/DD/YY, Episode NNN
The "NNN" for episode number may be 1, 2, or 3 characters long.
What I'd like to do is sort the files in order of the episode (so I can autonumber the tracks according to the episode order), but can't quite seem to figure out how to do that. If the episode numbers were all three digits, I'd just place them in front of the "The Whistler" and do the sort on the comment field. Unfortunately, the episode numbers can be one, two, or three characters long so if I sort based on them episodes I'll get them all mixed up.
Any ideas on how to address this problem? Maybe there's another way to skin this cat?
