Bulk find and rename files in Linux
Posted on 2011-03-25
I wonder if someone can help me out with a command to accomplish a bulk rename.
I have hundreds of files within multiple sub directory's that contain a name I like to replace.
lets say the word is "thomanji"
I have files like:
so this means the word could be anywhere in the filename.
now I try to use find to search through the directory and find filenames that contain "thomanji" anywhere withing the filename and replace this word with something else.
Is this possible, maybe with a find command?
I would appreciate your assistance on this.
