Windows Explorer mass file rename.
I’ve been refactoring some code, make new files the hold classes of vehicles. So I have files in my vehicles directory
Now to make a new vehicle I select both files, copy and paste to get
Copy of vehicle_dozer.cpp
Copy of vehicle_dozer.h
Now if I select both and rename (F2) them, one is editable, so I change the file name part to vehicle_loader and I get
Now I remove the (1) and they are done.
So ok I still have to edit both files, but I only need to remove the (1) which means I don’t need to select the text to edit, or do any typing.
I was shocked when I discovered did this, because it’s just plan clever that it preserves the extensions, that it auto numbers the files to avoid conflict, oh and that it even works full stop.
