I was looking for a way to rename a huge number of similarly-named files, much like this one (a Windows-related question) except that I'm using *nix (Ubuntu and FreeBSD, separately). Just to sum up, while using the shell (Bash, CSH, etc.) how do I mass-rename a number of files such that, for example, the following files:
Beethoven - Fur Elise.mp3
Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata.mp3
Beethoven - Ode to Joy.mp3
Beethoven - Rage Over the Lost Penny.mp3
will be renamed like these?
Ode to Joy.mp3
Rage Over the Lost Penny.mp3
The reason I want to do this is that these collection of files will go under a directory named "Beethoven" (i.e. the filenames' prefix), and having this information on the filename itself will be redundant.
