Rename a set of files in 3 steps

Postby DataMystic Support » Thu Jan 23, 2014 9:10 am

Often you need to rename a set of files - it perform a search and replace inside filenames.

Using TextPipe this is a cinch!

1. Use DOS cmd.exe to generate a filename list from the starting folder, using

dir /b /s *.* > filenamelist.txt

in your starting folder to generate a list of files to rename.

Then drag and drop that file into TextPipe, using the attached filter.

2. Modify Step 7 of the filter to adjust the search/replace.

3. Run TextPipe (F9), and then double-click on the resulting .BAT output file.
