detox — clean up filenames


detox [-hnLrv] [-s -sequence] [-f -configfile] [--dry-run] [--special] file ...


The detox utility renames files to make them easier to work with. It removes spaces and
other such annoyances. It'll also translate or cleanup Latin-1 (ISO 8859-1) characters
encoded in 8-bit ASCII, Unicode characters encoded in UTF-8, and CGI escaped characters.

detox is driven by a configurable series of filters, called a sequence. Sequences are
covered in more detail in detoxrc(5) and are discoverable with the -L option. Some examples
of default sequences are iso8859_1 and utf_8.

The main options:

-f configfile
Use configfile instead of the default configuration files for loading
translation sequences. No other config file will be parsed.

-h --help Display helpful information.

-L List the currently available sequences. When paired with -v this option shows
what filters are used in each sequence and any properties applied to the

-n --dry-run
Doesn't actually change anything. This implies the -v option.

-r Recurse into subdirectories.

-s sequence
Use sequence instead of default.

--special Works on special files (including links). Normally detox ignores these files.

-v Be verbose about which files are being renamed.

-V Show the current version of detox.

Deprecated Options
Deprecated Options are options that were available in earlier versions of detox but have
lost their meaning and are being phased out.

Removes _ and - after .'s in filenames. This was first provided in the 0.9
series of detox. After the introduction of sequences, it lost its meaning, as
you could now determine the properties of wipeup through a particular sequence's
configuration. It presently forces all instances of the wipeup filter to use
remove trailing, regardless of what's actually in the config files.
