Full description The file renaming utilities (renameutils fThe file renaming utilities (renameutils for short) are a set of programs designed to make renaming of multiple files faster and less cumbersome. It currently consists of two programs: "qmv" and "imv". qmv allows files to be renamed by editing their names in any text editor. Since the files are listed after each other, this allows common changes to be made more quickly. imv ("interactive mv") is trivial but useful when you are too lazy to type (or even complete) the name of the file to rename. It allows the filename to be edited in the terminal using the GNU readline library. This is also useful when renaming files in Midnight Commander, where the whole filename has to be entered again.he whole filename has to be entered again.
