RegEx Rename 1.0.1 open source

RegEx Rename is a spin-off of Batch-RegEx for renaming files. It offers regular expression rename with the same expression system as Batch-RegEx. Operation can be via drag-and-drop, or via the command line (suitable for Explorer contextual actions, which is how I use it). Multiple replace commands can be specified at once.

Discontinued:
RegEx Rename is discontinued. It is left with the following limitations, never resolved due to lack of interest in the program:

  • Cannot rename folders
  • No simulation mode to check if your expressions are correct before obliterating your filenames
  • No duplicate name resolution: rename operations that would duplicate are simply skipped
  • No provision to first filter which files to affect when in folder-at-once mode (think RewriteCond)
  • No elementary commands for common tasks such as “make all extensions lowercase”
  • No file renumbering (still deciding how to handle this: I want to allow replacement of regular expression sub-patterns with a renumber marker)
  • Adding to the selection of files to be operated on (say, with shift?)
  • Match all is always off unless specified in each expression.
