Subject: Re: new extension for talkbox directory clip: ".dirname.tbx"

i`m no warrior, too - but this is a way to do it:

$ cat recursive_rename.pl
#!/usr/bin/perl

foreach $file (split (/\n/, `find .`)) {
    $newFile = $file;
    $newFile =~s/.dirname.mp3/.dirname.tbx/;
    rename ($file,$newFile)
    }

maybe there are more elegant ways....

i would suggest installing perl or cygwin so you have good scriping on windows, too ;)

roland
