Me = Bonehead! I deleted 'rename'


Help.

~grin~

Somehow I deleted the 'rename' command from my system. Running FC5 and I'm wondering if there is a way to just reinstall 'rename'.

Thanks everyone!!

lol...

OK i dont know how to do it exactly in fedora, but there ought to be a package called systools (or something like that) that you can reinstall, someone else will have to help you with that. in the meantime you could use mv oldname newname which does exactly the same thing, it even saves you 4 keystrokes
