This is a small script that I wrote in Python some time ago that renames, moves, or copies multiple files. It can use a regular expressions as part of it renaming function.

2009/09/24 -- Added some error messages and converted to new style classes.

This is a very flexible script and as such has a lot of command line arguments. If run with no arguments the following usage will be displayed to the screen.

Usage: /home/cnobile/bin/ -[DNRS] -[i Incoming path, d Destination path, o 'File pattern old', n 'File pattern new', s Start sequence, e End sequence, r New sequence start]

The CLI arguments have the following significance.

Use a \\n (\n if the entire file name is double quoted) to indicate the sequence number.

Example command line:

$ -i . -d . -o "p8220\n\n\n.jpg" -n "family-\n\n\n.jpg" -s 1 -e 16 -r 1 -R

If you have 16 JPG files with contiguous sequence numbers from 1 to 16 they will be renamed in the same directory. The above command will rename all the files starting with p8220 to family- plus the sequence number and the .jpg extension.
