Rename Project
Rename is a tool to rename files. It can change, lowercase and uppercase a batch of files, or modify their ownership. It's a small and quick tool written in C so it's quicker than most rename tools written in shell scripts. Rename is powered by the extended regular expression for searching and substituting string patterns in the file names.

These are main features of rename:

  • Substitue strings in file's name.
  • Search and substitue strings in file's name by regular expression.
  • Uppercase or lowercase file's name.
  • Support batch mode rename.
  • Recursively processing directories and subdirectories.
  • Support to read the filename list from a file.
  • Change ownership of files.
  • Safe mode: test before you go.
