Subject: Re: new extension for talkbox directory clip: ".dirname.tbx"
From: Salokyn (
Date: 2004-04-11

I'm unsing Win2000, the most easy way is to make a search for files with the
name "dirname" and to replace ".mp3" by ".tbx", but the explorer don't like
to rename a file with a period at the beginning (even if when it is renamed
it can be read, moved, copied). So I had to rename them with the ren command
of the "Win2000" DOS, it works fine but it's very long. I tried under
Mandrake10, but the search file feature doesn't work, so it's not more easy.

Why exactly are you having problems with the upfront period? In the Unix
world, this is the indication for a hidden file. Under Windows, it should do
harm. Put your filenames within quotes in the DOS box commands, then it
should take anything.
