Usage
Installation
Unpack the .exe anywhere (or build one wherever you want).

Using the Application

--- --- USAGE:
        remv [COMMANDS]
        remv [OPTIONS] <regex> <replacement> [<startpath>]

 OPTIONS (any combination):
        -r      Recurse into subdirectories.
        -d      Also rename directories on the way.
        -s      Sets the start directory to the last parameter
                else, remv will start in '.'.
        -v      Verbose logging.
        -vv     Very verbose logging.
        -n      Dry run - don't modify anything just yet.

 COMMANDS:
        -V      Display the remv version and exit.
        -h      Display this help screen and exit.

 You can use $1, $2 etc. in your replacement strings for back-
 references.
Uninstallation
Delete the executable file. You might want to add its path to your %PATH% if you want easier access.

Tips
Don't.  ;D

Known Issues
It sucks!

Intriguing...and I look forward to using it in the future should the need arise.   :Thmbsup:

Tuxman:
Thank you!  :)

Lintalist:
Nice - Reminds me of a program I used long ago, called gren (which was just a compiled perl script afaik).
Archived page here http://web.archive.org/web/20021202122701/http://www.geocities.com/gkarpo/gren/gren.html (from 2002)
"GREN can do all things DOS's RENAME can. However, GREN's power comes from being able to understand Perl's regular expressions (REGEXPs)."

I still have the program although I haven't used it this decade - attached for those interested as the archived download link might not work.

Tuxman:
Never heard of that! Too late now - damn.
