Firstly, 'Urgent' in no way describes the problem except that it is important to you.

Secondly, what have you tried and where are you stuck? The mv command can handle the copying to a new name or the rename command can complete the entire process.

No one here will write the code for you without seeing some attempt from you.

Also, you need to read the LQ Rules about text speak and NOT using it, and NO ONE here is going to 'ping you' via email. We aren't the place to come for free, personalized, one-on-one email support/tutorials.

You can either write a script, or spend a few seconds on Google to figure out how to rename files. You may actually even want to look at the man page for the RENAME command??
