- how i could add a .qxd extension to all quark xpress documents in a
given folder recursively if they don't already have one. would be cool if
that was also possible with other documents, such as eps files or tiff
since we have tons of them on our server and the new windows machines
have trouble without those extensions
- how could i replace all / & with a - anywhere in filenames and delete *
entirely. we have quite a few files scattered all over that are named
*Rez-s/w_new.tif. would be nice if thi would also work recursively and
just skip the instances where there is a conflict (say a file *Rez.tif
and one Rez.tif in the same folder)
In addition to the suggestions you've got already, you could try to
use Smile. Smile is a free AppleScript environment, if you don't
know, and it also includes a scriptable text editor. If you switch to
the "Enhanced find dialog" in Smile's prefs, the find dialog has a
"Rename files" option: you do search-and-replace in the names of the
files selected in Finder. Furthermore you can use regular expressions.
