Subject: RE: new extension for talkbox directory clip: ".dirname.tbx"
From: Aman Singer (
Date: 2004-04-11

Hi, Glenn.
        Again, I'm a bit lost on why you'd want to do this. If you use the
script to generate the names, you wouldn't need to do this. In any case,
though, even if the period were removed, and you tried
        ren *.mp3 dirname.mp3
        it wouldn't work, since the file system would only rename the first
mp3 file to dirname.mp3. At that point, it would see multiple dirname.mp3s
and stop renaming anything.

Yes, I think that the dot causes problems, as I tried the following:
ren *.mp3 .*.mp3
and it renamed all my folder MP3 files with a period in front, but it left
off the first letter of each folder.

what happens if there are 2 *.tbx file though?

i don't see why the . in front is such a big deal in the first place...
