Converting .tsv files to .txt files in one go

Hello,

I have got the tsv files and would like to convert it to the .txt file in possibly one command.
For eg. converting 20070330.tsv, 20070427.tsv to 20070330.txt, 20070427.txt, etc.

Can anyone please help with tihs?

Ozo great help. BIG thank you!!!

I used following formula to convert tsv files to txt files.
perl -e 'for( <*.tsv> ){ ($x=$_)=~s/sv$/xt/; rename $_,$x or warn "$x $!" }'
