mrename - program to rename files


mrename 'pattern' prefix [option]


This manual page documents briefly the mrename command. This manual page was written for
the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual

mrename is a tool for easy and automatic renaming of many files. The 'pattern' is the
pattern to search files to rename (quoted to avoid that bash resolve it), and prefix is
the prefix that will be added to the name of each file. The two alternative options for
copying or moving files in the new name are explained below. All parameters are needed,
and you have to stay and launch the script in the same directory of the files to be
renamed. The program should be able to write in this directory.


There are only the following three options.

-c The option -c will copy each file with the new filename.

-m The option -m will move each file in the new filename.

-h Display help.


If you have a directory with two jpeg images prof.jpg and forp.jpg and you want to add
them a prefix like item0, item1 etc.. (that is item0prof.jpg, item1forp.jpg etc..) do

cd /path/to/the/images
mrename '*.jpg' item -c

to copy each matching file into another with the new name

mrename '*.jpg' item -m

to rename each file without keeping a copy with the previous name
