This is awesome, thank you so much!
The only issue I've found is that it assumes no spaces in filenames or paths. I tried adding quotes in each necessary place but my lack of Perl foo failed me :(

Thanks. Glad this is of help.

To handle spaces in the path or filename (which I hadn't thought of before), you can escape the spaces with a backslash, so the command line recognises that it's a single path. I've updated the script to illustrate this scenario.

Very nice, thanks for sharing!

I was wondering if this can be tweaked for a Swift/Objective-C mix project. Any pointer? :) Thanks.
