Renaming tv shows

A swapping-ground for Regular Expression syntax

The problem is that if you swap the 2 for a 3 as in your last post, it won't work on editions with 2 digits.

The Match criteria I showed in my last post e.g. (.*)\s((\d{3})|(\d{2})) will work if there's 2 digits or 3 digits.

Ok, I've hit a series that is backwards now....

Original
Episode# - Episodename.mkv ex: "001 - Surprised.mkv"

Desired Result
Showname - epsiode# - EpisodeName.mkv ex: "Bargaining-E001-Surprised"

Bargaining being the name of the series, and surprised being the name of the episode


Since there are no "seasons" perse, just one long ass running series. Taking the original posters regex and trying to hybrid with the one you gave me is producing some fun results :p but nothing pleasurable LOL

Sorry I couldn't get back to this earlier.

RegEx (1)
Match: (.*) - (.*)
Replace: Bargaining-\1-\2

Thanks! that seems so simpler but I was more trying to modify the existing ones you gave me and play with the results!

If for whatever reason you want to modify the others this is probably as close as you'll get.

RegEx (1)
Match: (\d{3}|\d{2}) - (.*)
Replace: Bargain-\1-\2
