|Here are some possible reasons
one could need it for:
have a complex renaming: first swap extension
and name then make names equally long then sort
by number then renumber then swap
extension back then sort by name and add a
running number. Maybe this could be done in one
turn, but who wants to type it over and over
You want to use a function twice, but with different
parameters. Example 1: First replace "a"
to "b" and then "y" to
"z". Example 2: First replace
occurence 4, then occurence 18. You can't do it at once, you
would have to rename twice.
have a folder where new files are added and as
soon they're added, they should be renamed. For
example add leading zeros to
want to rename files later, because now it's not
possible, e.g. because the files are on a CD.
I plan to be able to accumulate multiple
filename changes like a queue.
This function is kind of a sister to save
settings. I plan to implement save settings,
so maybe save renamings=macros isn't far away.
This function is a brother of command
line options, because you could save a
macro and then run that macro on start up. I
will see what I can do.
