The .cbr (comic book rar) file format is proprietary and doesn't play well with all comic book readers. This script will recurse a directory and convert each .cbr file found to .cbz. We divide up the work by directory and use gnu parallel to execute on each folder. After the work is complete we cleanup the old cbr files and move them to the trash folder. This tool is meant to be a one-shot to convert your whole collection. Spaces in directories or filenames are anticipated and OK 👍.

In order to use this tool, you will need these things installed:
There are no requirements to use a specific shell, but I have not tested on all of them, only ksh and bash. The above dependencies should be available in your OS's package manager (apt, pkg, portage, dnf, etc.)
cbr-convert ./MyComicsDir # convert all cbr files found in this directory cbr-convert -j 8 ./Deadpool # convert using 8 threads cbr-convert -h # show this help message cbr-convert -v # show version !!! - After conversion .cbr files are moved to trash - !!! (Note that this will recurse down into each subdirectory)
