Update to My Renaming Script


I have vastly improved my renaming script and published it to GitHub for your convenience.


Original article:

A while back I wrote a post on renaming FLAC files to include their associated disc numbers.  For example, if you have a file from disc 1 named “01 – Track Name.flac” my script would change it to “01.01 – Track Name.flac”.

This updated version of the script allows the user to enter the path to the folder needing files renamed and the associated disc number.

I think this is a slightly simpler method than my previous method for using this script.

Here is the current script:

# Please refer to note at top of article for direction to current script.

This version also handles FLAC extensions in any case (flac=FLAC=FlAc &c).

If I make any updates, I’ll likely just change this post.  As such, I should say that this current version is current as of 8 March 2010.

Have fun with that.
