Batch Renaming Tool
« on: January 25, 2003, 03:56:50 PM »
Hello,

I created this tool in Visual Basic to solve the following problem. I had a long list of mp3's that I uploaded to the data/media folders to import into the 4images Gallery. Unfortunately the filenames contained characters such as "_" and "#" which made them difficult to read and sometimes brought up issues with the search function.
This tool steps through an entire directory and replaces all the characters specified (in the filenames) with a chosen character.
Just download and install the package (windows-based) and try it out.

Here are some more examples on how to use the tool:
1. Remove blanks from filenames
2. Replace invalid,useless characters with blanks or other characters
3. "Clean" up your filenames to make them more legible

Good Luck and thanks to the 4images admins

Hallo,

Dieses tool wurde in Visual Basic erstellt um das folgende Problem zu loesen.
Ich hatte eine lange Liste an Mp3 Dateien die ich ins Verzeichnis data/media hochgeladen habe, um sie in 4images importieren zu koennen. Leider enthielten die Dateienamen einige Zeichen, z.b. "_" und "#". Dies hat zur Unuebersichtlichkeit beigetragen und sogar manchmal zu Probleme mit der Suchfunktion gefuehrt.
Dieses Tool nimmt eine List von Dateien in einem Verzeichnis, und ersetzt alle angegebenen Zeichen mit einem anderen Zeichen.
Einfach runterladen und installieren (windows) und ausprobieren.

Hier sind einige weitere Beispiele zur Anwendung:
1. Leerzeichen entfernen
2. Unnoetige, unbrauchbare Zeichen mit Leerzeichen oder andere Zeichen ersetzen.
3. Dateinamen 'saeubern' um die Uebersichtlichkeit zu verbessern

Viel Glueck und Lob an die 4images admins!

Dazu empfehle ich

www.harmware.com Batchthumbs 1.5 mit dem man nicht nur das Umbenennen realieren kann sondern das auch noch Thumbs auf Wunsch erstellt!

Your first three "must do" before you ask a question:

possible solution

an sql query, imported from a text file could do the trick here. You could go into a mysql tool (phpmyadmin) and just import the file for processing. then again, I wouldn't know where to start. Any mysql experts?

Does anyone have this code or zip file?  The link is broken, and I would really like this mod.
