What's this program for?

This program is designed to rename large amount of files based on rules.

What kind of rules?

There are simple search-and-replace-rules and Regex-Rules (see below). With simple rules you can for example say "replace all DSC with Photo , or replace all .mpg.mp3 with .mp3. With Regexes you can do way cooler stuff, see below.

How to start?

Download and run the programm (see above).
Create a folder somewhere and copy some of the files which shall be renamed there. Add some rules (called "filter") in the program ("Add Filter"-Button). When you think you're done, click on "Start" and choose the folder you've just created. If it worked - good! If not, delete the files and copy them again. If you're satisfied with your result, run it on the original files.
WARNING: There is no undo-option yet! So be careful!

You can save and load a set of rules (called filterlist) by clicking on the "Filtermanager" in the top menu. There you can also export them to a file and send them to a friend. If you think you created an universal filter (one which other may find useful too), send it to me, and I will maybe integrate it into the default program and/or provide it on this website. That'd be great!



WTF is Regex?

If you don't like playing around with your computer a bit, forget about it and don't use it. Otherwise read on, it's really useful and mighty!
Regex stands for "Regular Expression" and allows you to express almost anything for searching, replaching or removing parts of strings (text).

WARNING: Regex requires you to play around a little and some learning by doing.

Read Wikipedia for a more formal intro.

Useful links for learning Regex:

The Regex I use does not work! / What kind of Regex shall I use?

The programm is written in JAVA, so use the JAVA-Convention for Regex.
Java-Regex does not use delimiter. For case-insensitive put an (?i) in the beginning of your regex-code. Single-Escape special-chars like (, [, {, " etc with \.
