I have hundreds of jpg images where each image is named P123****.jpg where the **** are chinese characters. I can't open the file - it has to be renamed before I can open it. Evening if I could open it I don't want the Chinese part as the name.
Each file starts with 3 or four western characters and then has 3 or four chinese characters, before the western .jpg extension. I want to to test each filename character by character to see if it is western, and then when the first Chinese Character is found, have it simply rename the file to the 3 or four western-character name + .jpg I can write most of the script but I don't know how to test for western and/or Chinese characters. I could run a script that would simply rename all the files to a number in sequential order but I would rather use the existing starting name of the file if possible. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
