Renaming Files [message #244133] Mon, 11 June 2007 12:36 Go to next message

Hello, I have several files with the following naming convention sitting in the same directory.
MyFile.0001.dat
MyFile.0002.dat
MyFile.0003.dat
MyFile.0004.dat
MyFile.0004.dat

I would now like to rename each file and append it with a prefix of Processed so they will now read like:
ProcessedMyFile.0001.dat
ProcessedMyFile.0002.dat
ProcessedMyFile.0003.dat
ProcessedMyFile.0004.dat
ProcessedMyFile.0004.dat

Could someone please tell me how to do this using Korn shell. An in depth example would be much appreciated.

ls -1 Myfile* | awk '{print "mv "$1" Processed"$1}' > temp.sh ; sh ./temp.sh

above is UNTESTED
You should make copies for backups before starting
