Great !

Your help is really valuable. The thing is that I have a list of directories like this:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 2009-08-30 22:44 000-default -> /path
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 2009-08-30 22:44 001-default1 -> /path
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 39 2009-08-30 22:44 002-default2 -> /path

And I'm writing a script, that in case of removing one of that links, for example the 001 one, the other links below must decrease it's name (in this example, if I'm removing the 001-default1, the 002-default2 must move its name to 001-default2, and so on). And I thought I would do it with some kind of loop within the line numbers.

So, thank you!
