Hello! I'm brand-spanking new to the BRU, a clueless philistine when it comes to Regular Expressions and anything beyond basic-basic HTML, and I have a *very* large quantity of files that need renamed in a particular pattern. Any help appreciated - I've printed out the help file, and read through, but am almost as clueless as before I printed it.
My files are all .jpg files, in separate folders, and the current naming pattern is as follows (where "blah" could be any combination of letters, sometimes with a numeral at the end of the name, typed in lowercase):
I'm embarrassed that I can't seem to figure this out, because it's such a simple switch - I need to change the case of all of these files, but only the "blah" part - the a.jpg, b.jpg, c.jpg, etc. need to stay lowercase (there is an a/b/c/d/etc. designation before the .jpg on all files I'm working with).
The resulting files need to look like this:
...and some of the file names have numerals in them that have to remain numerals(like BLAH1a.jpg, BLAH1b.jpg) - all of the numerals appear as the last character before the a/b/c/etc. at the end of the file name.
I keep futzing with the program, which I'm finding to be amazing, and I'm mumbling to myself, "ooh, neat - I had no idea you could do that!" quite regularly as I come across things I wish I'd known in times past, but no matter what I do I can't figure out how to do the specific thing I need it to do! AARGH! I'm not used to being a person who looks at a help file and can't teach myself something - ANY help appreciated, since without help I will spend literally WEEKS renaming files so that they can be posted on a website that requires the file names to be just-so!
Thank you all!
