Awesome Linux Utilities for five hundred, Alex!

I just discovered 'rename' today after briefly considering writing it myself. Here's the gist of it:

rename [ -v ] [ -n ] [ -f ] perlexpr [ files ]

So, for example:

rename 's/(.*?), (\w+)/$2 $1/' *.avi

Changes a bunch of videos from "World Is Not Enough, The.avi" to "The World Is Not Enough.avi" Hooray!
