New Regular Expression Feature: what do you think?

Postby Admin » Sat Jun 06, 2009 10:10 am

We are considering adding this feature to BulkRenameUtility: the ability to add multiple regular expressions match and replace within the same field. So instead of having to use two passes, it can all be done in one pass. Example:

Instead of:

First Pass
Match: ^(.*)\((\d{1}|)\)$
Replace: \100\2
Select all files to rename and rename them.

Second Pass
Match: ^(.*)\((\d{2}|)\)$
Replace: \10\2
Select all files to rename and rename them.

Use
Match: ^(.*)\((\d{1}|)\)$&&^(.*)\((\d{1}|)\)$
Replace: \100\2&&\10\2
Select all files to rename and rename them.

&& is the new separator for first pass and second pass. What do you think? thanks

Hello

Was this ever put into BRU as it is exactly what I am looking for???

I tried and it did not work.

Not sure if it is my incorrect implementation or it is not part of BRU
