    Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    Are there any loungers familiar with an application that will recase multiple filenames at one time?

    Please advise....thanks!

    Hi Bruce,

    I have this utility which I find to be very useful. Helped me many times.

    Rname-it not only it will let you recase file names, but also replace or insert strings within a file name. It takes file extensions and prefixes as separate things, which is handy sometimes. Best of all, it's free.

    http://www.angelfire.com/ca/kent/frame.html

    From the web site: "file renaming utility specialized for batch (en masse) process renaming. It allows the user to select multiple files and rename them all at once. Files can easily be organized and grouped by renaming to a new common prefix and/or padded with a unique numerical or alphabetical value for sorting purposes. Also features Real Time Preview and Full (Final) Preview to ease the user in a complicated renaming procedures. Great for graphics collectors and webmasters!"

    By the way, I think I grabbed it from one of the many links in Loungers' signs. Hope it works!!!

    If you're inclined to roll your own, VBScript probably could do the job, although with a lot of nested folders, the code could get messy. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Mark ~

    Thank you! After trying about 11 or 12 different apps, this is the only one that recases all files in one fell swoop, and directories & subs, and I might add, with a quickness!

    Good looking out! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Re: Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    Glad it worked....moving my website to a Linux server was an experience that I won't soon forget. I'm still looking for an app that will converta all HTML tags to lowercase, but it's starting to look like I will have to roll my own, as Jefferson so succintly put it.

    No need to roll your own.

    HTML Tidy can change the case of HTML tags. You can find it at http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/

    Re: Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    Ahhh....perhaps I spoke to soon. It seemed to work at first, but then peters out after several passes and you must exit the app then restart and then it only goes one directory deep. It gets hung up on .url & .htm files.

    But for now it is still the best and beats doing it by hand.

    Re: Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    Hey Bryan... Thanks for that! I'll want to test that out when I get home. It sounds promising.
    I took a quick look and under Examples of TIDY at work I didn't see the caps to lowercase feature... it does this too? (or did I just miss it...
    I like the indenting feature I saw though...
    Like Mark, my fiance has moved our web server to linux based... what a surprise when I found out nothing worked because all my tags were in caps! <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>
    Thanks again
    have fun

    Re: Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    Sorry, Brian, I should have been more specific. The tags themselves aren't the problem, it's the values - if there is a reference to a file in a tag, I need to convert it to lowercase also, for consistency. For example: <pre>[img]images/pix/SomePicture.jpg[/img]</pre>

    should be <pre>[img]images/pix/somepicture.jpg[/img]</pre>

    I do appreciate the reminder about Tidy....it's an excellent program for cleaning up the mess that GUI editors create.

    Re: Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    You're welcome.

    If you scroll about 3/4 of the way down the page I posted under Using a Configuration File, you should see a uppercase-tags command as well as an uppercase-attributes command. That's how you set the case of the tags and attributes.

    But the case of the tags shouldn't matter, unless you are writing XML.

    I used upper case and mixed case tags for years on Unix based servers without any problem.

    The case of the FILENAMES are a completely different story.

    Re: Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    AH yes, that's a whole different ball game.

    A roll-your-own solution looks like it's in order.

    Although, if you file name's cases match the tag value, it shouldn't matter. I use mixed case all the time for image file names running on Linux servers.

    Re: Uppercase/Lowercase changing apps

    <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> yes, yes, that's what I meant... I haven't done it in such a long time. Everything I do now is lowercase so I won't run into a problem.
    Well, like I said, even for the indentations I'd like to take a look at it... sounds great.
    have fun
