HI!!!!!!   I have files named
-Abc-Galaxy Angel-[LIME]_Galaxy_Angel_1.mkv


-Abc-Galaxy Angel-[LIME]_Galaxy_Angel_26.mkv

would like to rename them to

How would i do this  in linux? I tried using a perl command that i usual use but it keeps prompting me with a error i think its cause of the -A infront of the file name.

The command i tried was

perl -e '($r=$_)=~s/\-Abc-Galaxy Angel-[LIME]/[LIME]/ && rename $_,$r for @ARGV' *.mkv

Unrecognized switch: -Abc-Galaxy Angel-[LIME]_Galaxy_Angel_07.mkv
