Programming :: Rename Files Matching A List?

Jul 12, 2009

Is there a way, preferably in python or BASH, to rename files from a list? for instance, track1.mp3, track2.mp3 should be renamed to the names stored in a file listing song names. I have tried to loop a variable through directory listing and renamed them, only to find that filenames with spaces can't be assigned to a variable as a whole. To solve the problem above, I have tried the read command in BASH, which enables the program reading line by line from a list. However, It was failed to pipe the results from directory listing to the read command.

General :: Have A List Of Files, Move Them Using One Command?

Nov 2, 2010

I have run a command which finds a lot of files based on some search criteria. It returns the files like so:

./somepath/somepath/file.something
./asdf/asdf/s.php
./etc/a.php
./a/b/c/d/e/f/g.jpg

So I was wondering, if I capture this output into a file (ie. one file per line), can anyone help me write a command which iterates through the file and moves the files one by one to a specified directory?

Ubuntu :: Command / Script To Rename Files In Datetime Order?

Jun 1, 2010

I'm trying to rename all files in a folder as such:

1.jpg
2.jpg
3.jpg

Renaming them is no problem, the problem I have is, they need to be in order of the datetime that they were taken, so that the 1.jpg would be the oldest file there. The difference in filetimes is going to be very small, around 3 or 4 tenths of a second.

The reason I need to do this is that I have another script (not quite finished yet), that takes the next three files in a loop and applies qtpfsgui to them to output an HDR image to another folder, then move on to 4,5 & 6, and: repeat.

General :: Rename Command Using Random Variables?

Apr 14, 2010

I'm trying to clean up some files and I've been using the rename command as its the easiest way I've found to do it. One problem I've found is that on a couple of batches of files they have a set random numbers on them which I need to remove.

Only problem is I can't find a way for rename to "lock" onto those numbers to remove them. The file name structure is something like this:

file name[random numbers].extension

There are brackets around the numbers as well which I'm not sure will help or not.

Slackware :: Use The Ls Command To List Files In One Column?

Sep 20, 2010

I am doing a spreadsheet for work (for importing data into a new database) and I have hundreds of image files which need to have just their file names in one column called Product Code. Is it possible to use the ls command to list the contents of a directory in one single column so that I can copy and paste to the spread sheet?

Also, is there a single command to remove the file extentions for a batch of files? Bulk rename is what I need, I guess but just to remove the file extension (.jpg on all of them). The normal use of ls lists them in multiple column form and when I copy and paste those it will not let me copy just one cloumn at a time. The spreadsheet only has three columns:

New Product Code Old Product Code Pictures New Product Code will be left black, and the Old Product Code is just the image names. The picture column will be the patch-to-the-image for each image. I am not sure that is even possible in a spreadsheet.

Red Hat :: Command Line Prompt But Not The Correct Bash Prompt?

General :: Script To Rename Files Recursively?

May 8, 2011

I'm planning to writing a script to rename files recursively.

To be said that I'm using /bin/sh (not /bin/bash) as this is the only shell available on the busybox of the linux router (tomato) I'm using.

Basically I would like to rename files with extension .jpg using as a suffix the filename of another file in the very same directory with extension .avi

The reason for this is because pretty much all the DLNA devices like modern TV playing .avi files will display a thumbnail of the video when browsing the filesystem, however to do so they'll need .jpg image wit hthe same filename of the video in the very same directory.

General :: Make A Script To Rename All The Files?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm currently trying to make a script to rename all the files with one provided file extension to a second provided file extension. I've achieved this by commanding "sh newext doc txt" with the following which works perfectly:

#!/bin/sh
for f in *$1;
do
mv "$f" "`basename "$f" $1`$2";
done;

However, I'd like to be able to modify what I've written so far, so that I can choose whether to convert file extensions in a subdirectory or not. For example, I could enter "sh newext -r doc txt" and the subdirectory's files would also be affected by my script, or enter "sh newext -n doc txt" which would only affect the directory I'm in.

General :: Script To Rename Files According To Filetype?

Jan 21, 2010

I get a bit lazy using cUrl, often letting downloads go without adding the proper extension to images and whatnot. Yes I know about the -O flag, but I'm the kind who likes to give my files unique names right off the bat (until they puzzle out a way to "stamp" files with originating URLs across platforms, Classic MacOS Web-browser style, curl -o is the way to go). So I was hoping someone could help me write a script (bash or python, doesn't matter which) that used the file command to look inside files in a single directory and then rename the ones it happened across that didn't have a 3- or 4-letter extension, appending the one that corresponded with the mime type. But this action only to be performed on files with no extension.

I know Linux and Unix don't bother much with extensions. I started home computing on a Mac IIcx -- that kind of intuition is beyond natural for me and very much appreciated. But I, and a few of my friends and family, alsose Windows where file extensions are an idiot-proof way, if nothing else good can be said about the two, to get file X to open in application Y and not Q, W or Z (or, worse for some, no application at all).I've seen a few scripts in different places, but they all seem to have the flaw of renaming files that already have an extension

General :: Can't Rename/move Files From OSX That Were Copied From NTFS

Jun 29, 2010

I recently had data recovered and it was sent back to me on what I think is an NTFS drive. I copied all the files over to a file share I have on a Linux box, that's ext4. Now I have that share mounted on my OSX machine, and I can't move or rename most of the files. However, in a couple cases I was able to rename a folder after the third try. Another time I was able to rename a folder once, but not again. All the permissions are showing up the same on the command-line -- I can't see any differences between the permissions on any of the files/folders. Note that I can create new folders and add files no problem, and then rename and move those all I want.

It should also be part of a bash script that I've written for the processing of these files - this is what I have so far:

After contracting malware on Vista i decided to switch over to Linux and chose to start of with Ubuntu because of the graphical interface. that being said, you have no doubt inferred that i have no coding experience. basically i was hoping to find some nice tutorials and sites for Ubuntu. Also, i did downloaded the suggested programs and patches but im still experiencing problems with Adobe,flash, and and opening .exe files. for the latter, when i click on .exe files it is equivalent of using explorer on windows so i was wondering how to use the command prompt to open them. supposedly linux is susceptible to malware so if you could please suggest a anti -malware program.
