Chgname 7.0

INTRODUCTION

Chgname is a fast, comprehensive and very
flexible file management tool, which changes
the file NAMES, all -DATES, all -TIMES and
-ATTRIBUTES. The main task for Chgname 
is to enumerate large number of files with 
similar names (like name001.ext, 
name002.ext). Chgname also changes 
CHARACTER CASE of file names for easy 
transportation between operating systems. 
Further, Chgname shows a preview of all
the changes. Chgname is made very flexible
by a wildcard system and many other options
for composing file names. In addition lists of
filenames may be edited like text files for fast
and efficient editing for all kinds of filenames.
Chgname even has the capacity to set all file date-
and time stamps progressivly (created, modified,
accessed). Files are imported into a file list through
an open dialogue box, drag-and-drop form the
Explorer, through a search function which includes
searching through subdirectories or through the
command-line. Command-line parameters provide
the means for full automation. The files are either
moved into one directory, left where they are or
copied into one single directory. Chgname is ideal
for everyone who have demanding tasks which
includes keeping order in large number of for example
data files.


EXAMPLE:
Renaming some .jpg files with enumeration from 10,
step 5 and minimum 5 digits. Prefix is "Pic", extension
is unchanged:
Pic00010.jpg
Pic00015.jpg
Pic00020.jpg
Pic00025.jpg ... etc.
