Projects / lcra


lcra renames filenames like COMMAND.COM and MAIN.C to more tasteful ones like and main.c. It tries to guess which filenames are DOS-ish ones needing changing, and which are really meant to be uppercase. It will fix the contents of a directory and all subdirectories. The companion program nsra changes spaces in filenames to underscores.

      A similar tool is (/projects/sanity/) which cleans up spaces (like nsra) and semicolons and umlauts (unlike nsra) from filenames. One or the other project should probably expand into a general tool for doing renaming where you can specify arbitrary Perl code. Larry Wall's 'rename' oneliner works, but doesn't handle recursing through subdirectories (which in this case is a useful feature to add to the tool itself).

      (Why isn't there a 'related projects' section of the Freshmeat database? Oh well...)
