vmv is a Vim plugin that allows you to group rename files from the command prompt with Vim.
vmv - the vim version of the mv command. This script is in intent exactly the same as renamer.vim, rename a mass of files all at once using the full power of vim's editing capabilities. Usage is much simpler to remember if you haven't used it in months, and the script itself is much shorter. Great for anybody who just ripped a CD to "track 01.mp3" through "track 12.mp3", or just inherited a collection of mp3's without proper case and with underscores instead of spaces.
Also notable is that this will deal with files that start with a - or -- just fine.
Usage is simple:
1. Give it a list of files to be renamed.
2. Edit that list to reflect what you want the file names to be.
3. ":wq" and you're done
Vim is a text editor first released by Bram Moolenaar in 1991 for the Amiga computer. Vim was created as an extended version of the vi editor, with many additional features designed to be helpful in editing program source code; its full name is Vi IMproved.
While Vim is cross-platform, it is most popular on Unix-like operating systems.
Released under a software license compatible with the GNU General Public License, Vim is free and open source software. The program's license includes some charityware clauses.
Like vi, Vim's interface is based not on menus or icons but on commands given in a text user interface; its GUI mode, gVim, adds menus and toolbars for commonly used commands but the full functionality is still expressed through its command line mode.
For many users learning Vim may be slow initially, but once the basics are understood they progress quickly. To facilitate this, Vim has a built-in tutorial for beginners. There is also the Vim Users' Manual that details the basic and more advanced Vim features. This manual can be read from within Vim, or found online.
Vim also has a built-in help facility (using the :help command) that allows users to query and navigate through commands and features.
