RENAME(1) User Commands RENAME(1)
rename - rename files
rename [options] expression replacement file...
rename will rename the specified files by replacing the first occurrence of expression in their name by replacement.
Give visual feedback which files where renamed, if any.
Display version information and exit.
Peform rename on symlink target
Display help text and exit.
Given the files foo1, ..., foo9, foo10, ..., foo278, the commands
rename foo foo0 foo?
rename foo foo0 foo??
will turn them into foo001, ..., foo009, foo010, ..., foo278. And
rename .htm .html *.htm
will fix the extension of your html files.
The renaming has no safeguards. If the user has permission to rewrite file names, the command will perform the action without any ques-
tions. For example, the result can be quite drastic when the command is run as root in the /lib directory. Always make a backup before
running the command, unless you truly know what you are doing.
The rename command is part of the util-linux package and is available from ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/util-linux/.
