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.

General :: Bash Script To Rename (renumber) Files?

Jan 27, 2010

I'm trying to write a script to process some images and rename them, or more specifically, renumber them so that pg_0001.png becomes pg_0.png, pg_0002.png becomes pg_1.png, etc. I've looked at the rename command and sed, but I'm not really very familiar with these. 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:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

Software :: Making A Bash Script To Read In Different Files And Rename Output Files?

May 7, 2009

Until now i haven't had to dabble with bash scripts.

I have a program that reads in data files. These are named datafile01_R, datafile01_G, datafile01_B, they then increment, so datafile02_R etc i have about 600 of these. the program reads in 3 data sets at a time from each run, so files_01 r, g, and b.

The program then does its magic, and outputs about 40 different files, depending on the file, they gone to folders named R, G, B, psa, or tracking.

The program itself has configuration files to say where the files should gone when analyzed, there is also the config files that reads in the data sets.

At the moment i have to run one set of data, then go in and manually change the input file location, and run again. But, doing this, even though a different data set, the new set overwrites the old set in one of the output folders. So i need a way to increment the output filenames after they are written and before the program is run again with the new data set.

Ubuntu :: Program To Rename Many Files At Once?

Nov 8, 2010

I guess the title says it all. I'm looking for a program that will rename a massive amount of files at once. JPGs specifically, or PNGs. More specifically,I'm creating a stopmotion movie. Using the program StopMotion. And for that, all you pictures, or frames, have to be named 001.jpg 002.jpg and so on. I've got about 300 or so images, and they're all named the default thing that my camera names them, you know, like DSCIM8520 or whatever. I'm looking for maybe a command line program or GUI is fine too, that will do this for me.
