I'm looking for the "rename" shell command for the macosx version of bsd. In redhat and possibly other linux distributions the command renames files and supports wildcards and multiple file conversions, as you most likely know. To be more precise here is the man page:
rename - Rename files
rename from to file...
rename will rename the specified files by replacing the first occurrence of from in their name by to.
For example, 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.
rename .htm .html *.htm
will fix the extension of your html files.
SEE ALSO mv(1)
If it exisits within the bsd distribution then where is it? If not, can you tell me why it does not exist? I suppose I could simply compile it from source, if I can find some source?
