Renaming files consecutively


I am editing a svg-file from Wikimedia Commons. The id's of the code runs like:
id="1"
id="12"
id="123"
id="1234"
id="12345"
id="123456"
id="1234567"
id="12345678" etc.

The filenames simply become too large. I want it to be:
id="1"
id="2"
id="3"
id="4" etc.

How do I do that?
Additional problem: Not all the id's in the file must be renamed.

what have you tried so far ?

maybe you can reverse the string and use cut to get the first element ?

I am learning regex, so I can get rid of the filenames with search and replace of Geany:
Quote:
search= id=".+"
replace= id=""
Removing the names was a breeze but renaming it....

What about replace= id="x" and x=x+1 (this is basic). Problem is that I cannot write a bash, perl or python script. I will look into reverse and cut.

Replaced id with id="x"

First attempt to bash-script: (my first ever)
Quote:
#!/bin/bash
x=1

do
id=$((x+1))

done
This gives me: bashscript.sh: command not found.

make sure bashscript.sh is executable:
Code:
chmod 744 bashscript.sh
and call it like so:
Code:
./bashscript.sh

Here is the output:

not really sure of the point of your script.
seems like you meant to write a loop but the keyword for or while are missing.
but it doesnt seem like a loop would be necessary so i would just take out the do and done.

you mite want to echo the output of the variable to see what it is doing.

It would be helpful to post a sample of the code you're trying to modify. Post the code in [CODE][/CODE] tags to preserve all formatting and content (important!). Make a few brief edits to show how you want the modified code to appear, and then post that separately.

The file is much longer. But the start of the file gives you an idea.
Every id="x" is a new line in the SVG-file and it needs a different name. So: id="g1", id="g2", id="g3, id="g4". No problem if the file was short but this is a large one. Also notice that at the beginning of the file there are several id's that must not be renamed.

If you're still listening, this Perl code seems to do what you need. It assumes your data is in the file 'LQvalidator456.txt', and sends the result to standard output, so it can be captured to another file.
Code:
perl -e '$x=0;while($inStr=<>){if($inStr=~m/id="x"/){$inStr=~s/x/g$x/;$x++;}print $inStr;}' LQvalidator456.txt

Oh yes, I am still listening. I have tried your code and it works! Here is the proof:

You have made my life much easier. Thank you very, very much.
