Is there a way to automatically parse URL's in OpenOffice.org?


Is there a way to automatically "parse" (<<<I think thats what its called) URL's in OOo? For example, lets say I have 5 urls that I copied and pasted into OOo. I want a way where I can automatically add UBB or vB code tags to the begining and end of each url.

example: http://www.rccars.com/image_1.jpgg(these are fake by the way)
http://www.rccars.com/image_2.jpgg
http://www.rccars.com/image_3.jpgg
http://www.rccars.com/image_4.jpgg
http://www.rccars.com/image_5.jpgg

I want to be able to automatically have the tags put on the urls like this...

[iimg]http://www.rccars.com/image_1.jpg[/iimg] (these are fake by the way)
[iimg]http://www.rccars.com/image_2.jpg[/iimg]
[iimg]http://www.rccars.com/image_3.jpg[/iimg]
[iimg]http://www.rccars.com/image_4.jpg[/iimg]
[iimg]http://www.rccars.com/image_5.jpg[/iimg]

Is there anyway to do this? This would save me LOTS of time. I usually just copy and paste the tags, which is a pretty quick way to do it, but its not fast enough when I have a lot of urls to tag. I know in photoshop you can batch rename a bunch of files, is that possible with the gimp also?

Try krename: http://www.krename.net/
Also, some distros come with a commandline "rename" utility.

Dude, thanx for the info. It works perfectly if I already have the files on my box but it doesn't work for just adding the ubb and vb code tags to the beginnings and ends of urls in OpenOffice.org. That is what I do most of the time. But I also have many files on my box that needs renaming so thanx a billion for helping me find that app!
