"Say you have a directory with 500 files that follow a standard
naming scheme and you want to change the names quickly or copy the
files quickly. It's a chore with mv or cp. You can use standard
*nix utilities to do it with a pipeline and practice, or you can
download a few GUI tools for renaming files in batches and a couple
of command-line utilities. However, if you're like many system
administrators, what could be better than using a text editor to
make the changes?
"The renameutils will let you do just that. This project has
five programs that make renaming files much easier. The primary
utilities are qmv and qcp. As the names suggest, qmv is for moving
files and qcp is for copying."
