Ranger is a file manager with an ncurses interface. It is designed to give you a broader overview of the file system by displaying previews and backviews, dividing the screen into several columns. The keybindings are similar to those of other console programs like vim, mutt, or ncmpcpp, so the usage will be intuitive and efficient.
Renaming a file works well when there is just one. But when you have a directory full of them, it gets tedious quickly. With nametrans, you can use search and replace on your list of files as you would on text in a document. And with regular expressions, you have even more power to transform file names (and whole file paths) systematically. With useful presets for common fixes like lowercasing or capitalization, you can keep your filenames nice and tidy, whether 10 or 10,000 of them, in one go.
Siren Renamer is a tool that renames, moves, and copies files using an expression. A lot of information associated with a file can be used, including name, extension, dates, and selection number. Other information is extracted from files according to their type: audio, video, image (standard and raw), EXIF, IPTC, Office document, PDF, ePub, HTML, and many others. Many different operations can be performed on character strings, complete directory trees can be processed, and images can be viewed. For example, to change a file name to uppercase with the mp3 extension, the expression can be '%ub.mp3'.
gcp (Goffi's CoPier) is a command line file copying tool, loosely inspired by cp, but with high level functionality like a progress indicator, the ability to continue copying multiple files even when there is a problem with one of them, and the use of a journal to track successful copying. File names can be fixed to ensure compatibility with the target filesystem. If you launch a copy operation when another is already running, the files are added to the first queue to avoid hard drive thrashing. You can keep track of files you have copied, and re-copy them later. gcp is approximately option-compatible with cp.
When moving files between filesystems that have permissions and those that do not, the user home directory is populated with files of all sorts of permissions. UFPM (Uniform File Permission Modifier) has been designed to modify all files and directories to have a uniform permission set based upon their file type.
