Sometimes the unix shell script is still the best tool for the job.
Today I needed to rename a bunch of java properties files from
*.json. Ok, I needed to do more then just rename them, but it makes the example easier to assume that is all that I needed done 🙂
I wrote the following script in rename.sh file.
Then I ran
chmod +x rename.sh followed by
./rename.sh to run the file. Done.
It’s a small example, but it demonstrates well just how powerful bash scripts can be.
