I have about 100 files I would like to rename based on the contents of the first line. For example, if I have a file File_23.txt and the first line is HG.ColorCodes.UndergroundCables, then I want the file to be renamed HG.ColorCodes.UndergroundCables.txt. When I Google this, what I find are ways to do this from a batch file, or from awk, or from VBScript. I can do that myself, but because of all the competition between file renamers, I would think there would be a way to do it from a GUI somehow. I am not seeing it in BRU or RenameMaster, though. BRU can read from a text file but you have to hardcode the new name for each file in that text file, so that is not what I want. Maybe there is something I missed?
EDIT: A cursory glance at the web site suggests Pfrank
may be able to do it, I will let you know,
