Simple Query - I think!

A swapping-ground for Regular Expression syntax

Simple Query - I think!

Postby 2007-05-16 » Wed May 16, 2007 10:55 am

I have 1000 icon files in GIF format here:

c:\icons\gif\

All of the files have the following naming syntax:

accept01.gif
basket_delete01.gif
bullet_add01.gif
...
zoom01.gif

etc...

Would it be possible to use the Bulk Rename Utility to rename all of the files to:

accept.gif
basket_delete.gif
bullet_add.gif
...
zoom.gif

Thanks

Jim

Sorry for being lazy

I am sorry for being a lazy no-good layabout.

Instead of posting this vague and irritating query, I read the very good tutorial on the site, and worked out how to do it myself.

A very excellent application. Thank you.

Sorry once again for wasting your time.

On the off chance the solution found wasn't a regex one (and this is a regex forum) - here it is as regex

from
^(.*)\d+
to
\1

[edit]
or even
(\D+)
to
\1

which is about as terse as it's going to get
