Baseball Pictures rename (switch names)

Postby MJHJR » Fri Feb 13, 2015 1:36 am

I have thousands of BB pictures for use in computer text games. I want them all to be last name first and have changed thousands.
The ones I am having trouble with are with the team name in them. For example:
Mickey_Mantle.jpg changes easy to Mantle_Mickey.jpg
Some are : Mickey_MantleNYY.jpg and some are : Mickey_MantleNYY_1956.jpg
How do I get them all to read : Mantle_Mickey_NYY_1956.jpg
How do I separate the NYY from Mantle ?

Thanks, Mike Hennelly

Hi, is NYY always attached to the name to switch?

Yes, the team name is attached to all of the names.
Like COL for the Rockies, PHI for the Phillies , MET for the Mets. CARD for St. Lewis

Yes, I have been doing that change on all of the players that have the first name first.

If they are : Mickey_Mantle.jpg - I use: (.*)_(.*) and \2_\1

If they are : Mickey_Mantle_NYY_1956.jpg - I use (.*)_(.*)_(.*)_(.*) and \2_\1_\3_\4

Some have the NYY right next to the last name and that is my problem.

Mickey_MantleNYY_1956.jpg

Thanks, Mike

For
Mantle_MickeyNYY_1956.jpg
you could use
(.*)_(.*)NYY_(.*)
and
\2_\1_NYY_\3
then the file is renamed to
Mickey_Mantle_NYY_1956.jpg

Thanks a lot !
Now, most of the team names after the player name are three letters: met, cub, phi, col, was, atl, etc

Can the letters ( nny, col, phi, etc ) in the expressions be changed so I don't have to do One at a time ?

Again , Thanks for you help. Mike

This should work:

(.*)_(.*)(NYY|PHI)_(.*)

with

\2_\1_\3_\4

For (NYY|PHI) separate all possible states with | (case sensitive).
