Fixing File and Path Conflicts with a Web Environment
If you are using a Web-development environment, such as Microsoft FrontPage, you can rename individual files in a project and the changes are made across the whole project. This task is best handled by a Web-development environment under UNIX or by a Web-development environment where the files are currently stored on a UNIX host. Otherwise, file-name conflicts and case conflicts are impossible to resolve.
If you have access to Perl or Python on your UNIX host, you can write a script that automatically changes the file name, the path of the file name, or other details across a range of files. For example, you can use Perl to change the reference from "index.html" to "Index.htm" in a group of files that end in the extension .html. To do so, use the following code:
Perl -i.bak -e "s/index.html/Index.htm/g" *.html
If you do not have access to Perl or Python, you can use the standard Stream Editor (sed utility) to make global changes in a file in a programmable format when you use the utility in combination with a shell script.
