Trying to come up with a way for torrents downloaded in transmission to autosort on completion

    So I have my router set up to auto-download certain TV shows, and it works perfectly. My only complaint thus far is that my download folder fills up quickly and it's mildly annoying to have to either sort through it for the new show i want or to move all the files to their appropriate sorted directories.

    So I'm trying to come up with a way for the torrents, upon completion of seeding, to automatically move to a particular directory. This is, of course, easy, because transmission can have a complete directory. But unfortunately, you can't set up multiple complete directories with rules on how to sort the torrents. The only solution I can think of thus far is to put together some sort of a script that will watch the complete directory for new files, and if they match certain rules, move them to a new directory. E.g., a new file shows up, it contains the string "louie" and automatically gets moved into /louie.

    The problem with that is that I'd have to teach myself how to write linux scripts, which probably isn't super hard, but I don't know how hard it would be to implement what I want to implement. I also figure I'm not the first one to wish for this functionality, so maybe someone has gotten there first and come up with a better way to do it.

    Anyone out there have any tips?
