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/Rename.pm 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>. INSTALLATION To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install or if you have Module::Build perl Build.PL perl Build perl Build test perl Build install DEPENDENCIES 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.
