man rename help file
I can't come to an understanding regarding how the remane command works when reading the definition from the man file as describe below.
Can anyone explain that's going on here in plain english.
From the man file:
For example, given the files foo1 ..., f009, foo010, foo278, the commands
rename foo foo0 foo?
rename foo foo0 foo??
will turn the above into foo001, ..., foo009, foo010 , ..., foo278
What are the question marks really doing Newbi can't figure this out except maybe the question marks are place holders.
I'm really finding that the man files are very difficult to learn from. Examples are for people already using Linux for a while.
