Rename inside a text file?

Postby aliceakiua » Sat Apr 25, 2020 4:09 pm


I have been experimenting around with Bulk Rename Utility which I find great, but I couldn't find any means to doe xactly what I want, that is to say open a text file and change a specific line in there. The reason why I want to do that is because I work on a 3D library and sometimes some items need renaming. But for example if I want to rename a .obj object, I also have to open the .obj file itself in order to change the name of the object inside the file itself.

So basically, is it possible to do that with Bulk Rename Utility?

Thank you

But something like grepWin or dnGrep or similar, should work, I'd think. (I'm not really familiar with either tool.)

Hi, BRU can not change the contents of files only the file names.
