Mass Rename is a simple pair of shell scripts which make it easier to
move, rename, or copy multiple files at once. It is intended mainly as an
automatic and simple way to rename multiple files with a customizable
prefix and a progressive number. It is also possible to modify the rename
format simply by editing one of the scripts. It is easy, complete, and
efficient, and was written only in sh code.
