BatchRename Folder Name like xxxx...yyyyyyy The last Letter position is wrong

Post by *rt2ryu » 2018-11-02, 07:55 UTC

Totalcmd version 9.12
OS Windows 10 2016 LTSB.

When I try to Batchrename a folder name like
123456......987654321
(6 dot in the middle )

use the [N1--8] to get the name from the first letter to the letter which start from the last 1 to last 8.

So I hope to get the result:
123456......9
but the result in Reality :
1234.987654321
So the Totalcmd start the last letter from the last dot symbol of "......" , Yes it recognized the . as the separate of filename ,not as a folder name.
So it set as the fifth dot as the last latter.

or you can understand The Totalcmd set as the
123456.....( 5 dot )
as the folder name. the
.987654321
as the suffix .

Hope to fix this question .

As the folder, it should no suffix. The question is made by the saveing of the web page ,which use the many dot in the middle of the name.

I am not sure if I understood what you're saying and what you're after (maybe to early in the morning for me)

but try instead of
| File name | Extension |
| [N]         | [E]         |

use
| File name | Extension |
| [A]         |                |



Screenshot of Multi-Rename Tool: https://www.ghisler.com/screenshots/en/06.html




Explanation:
[N] old file name, WITHOUT extension
[E] Extension
[A] Old file name, WITH extension (All characters of the name), without the path
(Press F1-key in MutliRenameTool to read more)



If that doesn't help, post a few real name examples, before and after renaming.

Why "no extension" for folder names? That is a valid name:


https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa365247(v=vs.85).aspx#naming_conventions
Naming Files, Paths, and Namespaces
Naming Conventions
   The following fundamental rules enable applications to create and process valid names for files and directories, regardless of the file system:
       Use a period to separate the base file name from the extension in the name of a directory or file.





HTH? :D
