Saving all photos in one folder instead of 100 per folder

Is there a way to script or set CHDK to not save photos in groups of 100 in incremented numbered folders on the flash card?  I want to take time lapse videos with thousands of frames, and so dealing with manually flattening out the file structure is a big pain.  I just want it to save all the pictures in one big folder.  I am using an A620 camera.  Thank you!

Doesn't this camera have such option? I own sx130 ad it is possible just by camera settings.

CHDK rather doesn't support such option, however you could make a script that would move photos to one folder AFTER the are created.

Simmilar could be done on computer with batch (on Windows) or bash/sh (on *nix) script. And I believe it would be even more simple.
