Removing file extension within a file.


I need a script that will search through file and remove the any ".tmp" extension it finds.
Before Example:
Transfer file: csm_itemmaster_20150811115313.csv.tmp*****

After Example:
Transfer file: csm_itemmaster_20150811115313.csv*****

Any help would be appreciated :)

In a batch file type:

Echo off
Rem change information in quotes and remove " 
Rem (point to the drive you want)

cd "c":

Rem (point to the directory you want)

cd "filesfolder"

Rem  This will search an entire folder and rename those that match

ren *."tmp"  *."cmd"

Do you want to change the name of the file, or a file name that is in the contents of a file?

I want to change the file name in the contents of the file not the file name itself.
Dan CraciunIT ConsultantCommented:
sed s/\.tmp// /path/to/old/file > /path/to/new/file

Open in new window

If you want to make the changes directly to the original file (not recommended):
sed -i s/\.tmp// /path/to/file

Open in new window
