Project Description

Introduction

rbco.rename provides a set of Python scripts to rename files in batch.

Install

  1. Install setuptools.

  2. Run:

    easy_install rbco.rename
    

This will install the renaming scripts mentioned in the following section.

Usage

  • rendel STR FILES

    Deletes the string STR from the names of all files in FILES.

  • rendeln N FILES

    Deletes the N first characters from the names of all files in FILES.

  • renlu FILES

    Renames all files in FILES performing the following operations:
    • replaces ‘ ‘ by ‘_’;
    • replaces ‘ - ‘ and ‘- ‘ by ‘-‘;
    • lowercase the names;
    • remove leading and trailing spaces.
  • renmp3 FILES

    Renames all files in FILES performing the following operations:
    • replaces all accentuated characters by their ASCII counterparts.
    • replaces ‘_’ by ‘ ‘;
    • replaces ‘ - ‘ and ‘- ‘ by ‘-‘;
