RegEx file renamer

Post by Melkor » 11/04/07, 2:28 am

I was looking for a regex file renamer and found this. It works well enough.

There have been numerous times that I’ve needed the ability to rename a set of files based upon a pattern, something regular expressions could easily take care of if the old DOS rename command, or something built into the Windows OS could do. However, there’s nothing in Windows base set of command utilities that can provide this. I haven’t delved into Windows PowerShell (fka Monad) enough to see if this capability exists already. But, I had a bunch of pictures that I wanted renamed in my library and just needed a utility to do it.

So, I built this utility to help me rename files, by directory, based upon Regular Expression patterns.

I didn't like how the interface worked so I made some changes.

The window resizes smoother and it tells you in the status bar how many items it found.

You can download it from here (source included):
