The XMove application was developed to be a small command line tool that moves files or directories using regular expression patterns.
Who haven't gone through the job of renaming a bunch of files ? I know I have for sure and up to this day, it was quite a chore ... Basically, I would fire up Textpad and make a batch file using its built-in Regular Expressions capabilities.
I did grow tired of always doing basically the same procedure over and over so I wrote this nifty utility in my spare time. You can think of it as the console "move" command on steroid, having all the power of regular expressions at its disposal.
With this tool, you can use a source Regex to specify which files to move/rename and then use any captures you made to specify the destination or new filenames.
This lets you easily rename all your mp3 in a standard way for example, or change the naming convention of a whole archive on your local intranet, etc.
It's up to you to provide the source and destination patterns : there are no built-in regex macros that you can use, except for changing case of filenames (to lower case, UPPER CASE, Proper Case and Sentence case), but it would be easy to add them if you feel so.
As a bonus, you will get two useful classes :
- ArgumentParser : Full featured argument parsing class, supporting switches, name/value pairs, flags and solo values and implementing a cool idea thought out by Ray Hayes
- FindFile : File/directory searching class supporting both normal Regex and wildcard searches and using delegates to feed results
