General :: Batch Renaming Of Files In A Directory Using Sed

Dec 11, 2010

I run a script which generated about 10k files in a directory. I just discovered that there is a bug in the script which causes some filenames to have a carriage return (presumably a '' character).

I want to run a sed command to remove the carriage return from the filenames.

Anyone knows which params to pass to sed to clean up the filenames in the manner described?

I am running on Linux (Ubuntu)

The character causing the filename to 'break up' accross multiple lines appear to be a CR (carriage return) instead of ' '. The filename is being diaplayed in thetitle of a text editor with %0D in the positions of where the file name breaks up. So I need to remove the CR chars from my filenames.

General :: Renaming Multiple Files In Batch Process

Feb 21, 2010

I have some random files in a folder. I want to rename all of the files in a batch process. I have a text file that contains the Currentname of all the files in the folder, as well as a text file with all of the Newname of files in the folder. I want to replace Currentnames with Newnames.

For example, here are the names of the files in the folder:
1.mp4
2.mp4
3.mp4

I have a text file with the Currentname of all the files in the folder:
1.mp4
2.mp4
3.mp4

I have a text file with the proper Newname of the file:
a.mp4
b.mp4
c.mp4

I want to rename Currentname with Newname in the folder. So when I go to the folder the Newname of the files are:
a.mp4
b.mp4
c.mp4

General :: Batch Renaming Based On Wildcards?

Jul 20, 2010

Is there a way to do a batch renames of files that will keep each individual filename, but change it in the way I want?

The specific issue is this. I have a harddrive with something like 1300 movies on it. They're all organized alphabetically, but there are like 200 movies that begin with 'The'. I want to rename all of these movies that begin with The so that the The at the beginning is dropped and added at the end (for example, turn "The Shawshank Redemption" into "Shawshank Redemption, The"). I'd like to do this with a simple command if its possible.

General :: What's The Command For Renaming Files

Jun 8, 2010

What's the command for renaming files? I thought it was "mv"--I typed "info" and read

Quote:

* mv: (coreutils)mv invocation. Rename files. So, desiring to give a .JPG extension to a jpeg file that had no extension (because I dug it out of my Firefox cache), I typed

Quote:

mv '/home/josh/Desktop/Natalie pictures/DEC8FFA5d01' *.jpg

That didn't rename the file; it made the file disappear from its folder. What did I do wrong?

code: for f in /path/to/*; do echo mv "$f" "PRE_$f"; done

gives you this: mv /path/to/file1 PRE_/path/to/file1

General :: Renaming Multiple Files Caused By Dropbox

Jul 20, 2011

Recently I installed Dropbox on a server to do file synchronization and it added " (Case Conflict 1)" to a whole bunch of my files! I realize now that it was caused by case insensitivity but I'm still left with hundreds of files that are in this renamed state. Is there a script in Linux that would allow me to recursively go through the directories and strip out this string?

i.e.
a (Case Conflict 1).jpg --> a.jpg
/myfolder/abc (Case Conflict 1).doc --> /myfolder/abc.doc
/myfolder/subfolder/mydoc (Case Conflict 1).pdf --> /myfolder/subfolder/mydoc.pdf

General :: Renaming A Bunch Of Files Using For-structure And The Mv Command?

Feb 3, 2010

Basically I need to rename a bunch of .doc files using the for-structure and the mv command (w/ wildcards) in bash. I guess this would be a bit easier if I'd use the rename command, but since this is a school assignment of sorts I need to use for & mv. The .doc files are named "1filename.doc", "2filename.doc" etc. And I've got to rename them to "aaa_1filename.doc", "aaa_2filename.doc", "aaa_3filename.doc" and so on. Tried to dabble quite a bit with the for and mv commands, basically just got a bunch of errors. Every damn time. For 2 hours. The most common error was "mv: missing destination file operand after ..."

General :: Renaming External Files Changing Ownership Instead Of Root

Mar 28, 2011

i have inherited a mixed bag of sorts: several xp users updating an access mdb with the BE on a lamp stack shared via samba. i have a backup device which gets mounted at: /media/disk... each client record (has) a folder by the companyname on the samba share, and all relative documents are placed there. when the backup script runs, it just copies newer or missing files.

someone has been renaming folders, and not matching the folder name to the related companyname from the mdb. so...the backup script captures and duplicates the data in the renamed folders. some client records also have periods in the name (not required from a data pov), such as 'Company Ltd.' instead of 'Company Ltd'. i can produce a list of company names as the folders should be found easily enough, but get a little stuck with the linux scripting.

i can easily remove and further prevent any unwanted punctuation in the company name on the client record, and create the correct folder name on the samba share with vba, but would also like to:

-for each 'client activity' folder on the backup device
-rename the folder by removing punctuation marks
or
-delete the folder if is a dupe

i tried: ls -al | grep '&' - it properly returns only those lines with an ampersand in the folder name, but returns all folders when i try that with a '.'.

what would be the easiest method to do the renaming? i thought if there was a way to change ownership of the mounted device, then the vba code (easy to write) would be simple.

OK - i just ran chown -R on the external device, changing ownership to (me) instead of root. didn't want to because it took too long, but can now use the MoveFolder method of the filesystemobject from my app to do the renaming instead of some sort of bash script (which i was dreading).

General :: Renaming Files With Sed - Mv: Missing Destination File Operand After `$i'

Mar 20, 2011

Today i am trying to learn how to use sed. I set up a testing folder with the following files:

AAb.lol
AAc.lol
AAx.lol
test.sh

My goal is to create a script (test.sh) which renames all the files to their original name without AA. I want to end up with this:

b.lol
c.lol
x.lol
test.sh

sed seemed to be the perfect tool so i went ahead and created a script which i think should clear the job.

[Code].........

mv: missing destination file operand after `$i' From that 2nd line i can tell that $NewName is just empty. I also read something about sed needing the -e option for scripting purposes but i just don't understand it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Batch Convert Entire Music Directory To 320kbps MP3

Jan 3, 2011

I have a large (~60GB) collection of music in various formats on my hard drive. It is organised in the form Artist/Album/*.ext

The formats include M4A, FLAC, MP3, and OGG. What I would like to do is convert the entire directory, keeping subfolders and ID3 information intact. I would preferably like to be able to do this with a single script.

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 x86_64. I am fairly adept with BASH and the command line, so I foresee no problems there. If I have to write my own script, these are the things I'm not sure about:

(a) maintaining the directory structure.
(b) how to tell the script which converter tool to use (LAME, FLAC, etc.
(c) keeping ID3 tags.

Ubuntu :: Renaming Files Through Bash

Feb 10, 2011

I'm trying to rename ~11000 files. What has happened is I have files in the following format:

string1_100_string2_200_string3_300.log

now the numbers 200 and 300 are sometimes below 100 and the file looks like this:

string1_100_string2_99_string3_99.log

and I want to rename such files to be like this:

string1_100_string2_099_string3_099.log

I wrote a small matlab script but it seems to take forever so thought I'd try and do it bash and have got near to nowhere....

General :: Find Directory Older Than X And Mv Directory With Sub Files Command?

I'm quite new to linux but I have configured a simple ftp server and it's working great. I have a FTP-Shared folder with upload and download subfolders. Under upload's and download's I have identical category subfolders like mp3's, movies, software etc. in both. As the guy's upload, I would like to create a line crontab where I can move all the content under /FTP-Shared/upload/mp3/* older than 14 day's to FTP-Shared/downloads/mp3/ recursively (Like in cp command), but the timestamp must be searched on the first directory and not sub files example: /mp3/Club Dance/CD1/Hallo world.mp3This is how far I got:[root@clients ~]# /usr/bin/find /FTP_Shared/upload/Mp3s/ -depth -mindepth 1 -mtime +14 -type d -exec mv -f {} /FTP_Shared/download/Mp3s/ ;This command moves the directory and files, but it is not recursively

Programming :: Bash - Renaming Files Won't Work

Apr 1, 2010

I'm trying to rename a lot of files getting rid of the space on the names. For that purpose I wrote this very simple bash script, but for some reason is not working.

Code:
for i in "$(ls)"
do
j=$(echo "$i" | sed 's/ /_/g')
mv "$i" "$j"

done But what I get in return for each line is just one long file name with all the file names concatenated. I've tried with echo -e "$i" as well with no results. This has to be something really simple that I'm missing but I just can't see it.

Programming :: Renaming Files With Asian Characters?

Jul 19, 2010

I have a bunch of files that I need to rename, ordinarily this is pretty easy task. The problem here is that the file names have Chinese / Japanese characters. ie [$$$$$$$$].SOMETHING BLAH BLAH.ext Where all the "$$$$" are insert Chinese characters. The problem is that sed or perl doesn't seem to handle the Chinese characters correctly so using a regular expression like this 's/^[*.]//' which would normally work doesn't. From what I have read so far I believe these characters are double encoded UTF-8 (not 100% sure) which could be the problem. So far I've tried numerous different regex's as well as playing around with convmv to see if I could convert the filenames to just single encoded characters but I've had no luck.
