G'day folks,

I'm in the market, (as it were), for a tool / app that enables renaming of files in bulk / batches.

Any suggestions?

Cheers.

rename or when preferring a graphical interface krename

      Code:
       For example, to rename all files matching "*.bak" to strip the extension, you might say

               rename 's/\.bak$//' *.bak

       To translate uppercase names to lower, you'd use

               rename 'y/A-Z/a-z/' *


good luck,
mork
