I am looking to rename a bunch of images (all with .jpg extention) with random alphanumeric names. Example would be 08kDRH1s.jpg or 0FwzUc3.jpg. Doing some searching I did find a few batch scripts that used $RANDOM but that is only values between 0 and 32767
A user pointed me to a batch script that generates random 8 character alphanumeric strings.
I want to rename batch of files named Example1.java,Example2.java....... to Q1.java,Q2.java...... at once
Is this possible?
I looked for an answer but I couldn't found. And I'm new to Ubuntu.Currently my desktop is running on Lucid.
Please help me
I have a large unix fileserver, with a single large SMB share. It serves to Mac, Linux and windows clients. A large portion of the files on this box have been migrated there from a Mac Xserve. One of the ways the share is backed up is via a Windows box. That particular backup software fails if there are characters it doesn't like in the filenames.
