LXer: Mass-Rename Files Using an Easy CLI Method

Published at LXer:

You may find this useful to rename MP3 or image files in a directory, so they will all look the same. The following script will work on directories with less than 100 files of the same type, and will rename all of them to file01, file02, file03, ... and so on.
