File-Rename version 1.20

File::Rename provides an implementation of Larry Wall's eg/rename
command.  All I have done is add some error checking and (more recently)
add the File/ module.

An earlier version of the script is out in the Internet and is included
with some linuxes, and the original eg/rename is not included in the
Perl distribution, so I have put this up on CPAN.

A revised version of the earlier script is now on the Internet,
which includes more options.  This script, distinguished by
"Getopt::Long::Configure('bundling')", was not written by me; I think
the author is Aristotle Pagaltzis.  Version 0.10 of this distribution
has similar options to the revised script.

For Windows, the script is called file-rename to avoid clashes with
existing rename command.

In 1.00, File::Require::Options is a separate module, 
and is not made visible by C<require File::Rename>. 


To install this module type the following:

   perl Makefile.PL
   make test
   make install

or if you have Module::Build

   perl Build.PL
   perl Build
   perl Build test
   perl Build install


This module requires these other modules and libraries:
File::Basename File::Path File::Spec Getopt::Long
(all included with Perl). 

Testing requires File::Temp and Test::More which are
available with perl 5.6.0.  I have successfully installed
those modules for perl 5.005_05 and tested this module.
