Yeah, many systems ship with the util-linux one as default. Well, if you have perl-rename, you can use my answer. On my Debian, it claims to warn before overwriting but doesn't actually do so. I also added a shell version that can avoid overwriting.

Improved formatting to avoid horizontal scrolling. [^ ] means anything but a space, you meant ( .)

Just wondering what your rename is. Is it the perl one on Arch or the BSD one?

Please don't post link-only answers. Even if the link is pointing to other sites on the SE network. Instead, copy the relevant information into your question or write an answer to this question, based on the information there.

@Antagonym you could always use hardlinks instead of symlinks. That way, renaming the file will not break the link.

comment usermod returns “group 'thegroupname' does not exist” for known group
Huh? You mean the issue was thta you were running sudo useradd testgroup instead of groupadd? If so, lol, and nah, not worth posting an answer, just delete it. It's unlikely to help anyone else.
