Move and rename files in bulk.

  • Rename all files with a certain extension to a different extension:
    mmv "*.old_extension" "#1.new_extension"
  • Copy report6part4.txt to ./french/rapport6partie4.txt along with all similarly named files:
    mmv -c "report*part*.txt" "./french/rapport#1partie#2.txt"
  • Append all .txt files into one file:
    mmv -a "*.txt" "all.txt"
  • Convert dates in filenames from "M-D-Y" format to "D-M-Y" format:
    mmv "[0-1][0-9]-[0-3][0-9]-[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9].txt" "#3#4-#1#2-#5#6#7#8.txt"
