 Rename multiple files on the command line

If you wish to quickly rename multiple files in a directory, a for loop (sometimes combined with other utilities such as sed or tr) is one way to do the job.

The examples in this article include removing spaces from filenames, adding and removing suffixes and prefixes, and changing from uppercase to lowercase.
