Thread: File Names

    Red face File Names

    Hello, I have another question... I was wondering if anyone knows of an API for changing filenames in a directory. This isn't what it sounds like. Someone wants me to write a little app for them that shortens names of mp3 files so they won't get chopped by the burning program. I will parse these file names and remove extraneous formatting and unnecessary words and then re-name each file in it's edited form, if that's possible! Thanks in advance.

    rename(old_filename, new_filename);

    Or MoveFile().
