Copy all files with given extensions from a directory and its subfolders to another directory.
Selective Copy v0.3.0
Simple command line application that copies all files with given extensions from a directory and its subfolders to another directory showing progress bar and remaining files counter.
Allows to preserve a source folder structure, to process only files without given extensions, to move files instead of copying, to exclude certain files from processing and to create a log if necessary.
Opens a filedialog if source and/or destination are not given in the command line.
Creates folders in a destination path if they don't exist.

v0.3.0 - 2019-08-22
- Black code style
- The code is now divided into separate modules
- Dots that come with extensions are removed from output folder name. The reason is that folders with a name starting with a dot are considered as hidden on Linux.
- Log saving indication
- Name of the logfile
- Issue when paths like /home/user/test and /home/user/test2 were considered as nested which lead to an error.
