Renaming Multiple files


I am trying to rename multiple jpeg files. I would like to have the new files renamed with a trailing digit and change the extension to .jpg

011.JPG -> img011.jpg
012.JPG -> img011.jpg

In some cases I already have img in the file name but it has .JPG as the extension. I need to have the extension changed to lowercase (.jpg)

ex. img012.JPG should change to img012.jpg

I am using RHEL 5.

Any help will be appreciated.

Try a
man rename

Depending on the distro you're using you may have either an elf-executable
or a perl-script by that name, each of which work slightly differently.

And if you had your distro in either your profile, or your thread, you might
get more targeted responses ;}
