Mass File Naming

 [1/2] from: aroberts::swri::edu at: 30-Aug-2001 21:23

I have a simple thing I want to do, but I'm too tired to figure it out. I want to rename all the files in the current working directory, by chopping off the last two characters of their file name. Ie - fred.txt.1 me.txt.2 your.txt.a How can I do this? Regards, Aaron

Here you go! ------------------------ rebol [] dirs: load %/c/ foreach file dirs [ either not (find file "/") [ oldname: copy file probe file remove copy clear find file last file remove find file last file probe file rename oldfile file ][ print [file "is a directory"] ] ] --------------------------- cheers! -Max Contrary to popular belief, Unix IS user-friendly... its just picky on who it considers a friend
