(Batch) convert files

From TotalcmdWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

One common file operation is to convert a file. This could be convert to a different encoding or to a different file format.

There are of course already workarounds involving external programs or plugins made for other purposes but that's of course always possible.

An integrated way to do this would be preferred. One way would be an extra dialog. Another way could be to combine this functionality with the multi-rename tool. Or the other way round like many known converts do - provide conversion functionality and include multirenaming... I guess there are many ways.

Conversions which TC is already capable of could be handled internally. Of course plugins would expand this basic functionality with a new plugin interface.
