Filename or wildcard masks are used for simple pattern matching using special placeholder characters.
Masks can be used in several places in ReNamer, including:
||Match any number of any characters.|
||Match any single character.|
Extended pattern matching
||Matches any one of the specified characters ("a", "b" or "c").|
||Matches any one character in the specified range ("a" through "z").|
Note: Only the selected renaming rules support extended pattern matching features.
Multiple masks can be expressed in a single parameter (mask list) by separating individual masks with semicolons (";").
For example, a mask list
*.txt;*.doc matches files with a
||Matches files which have ".jpg" file extension.|
||Matches files which start with "magic".|
||Matches files which have "magic" anywhere within the name.|
||Matches files which end with "magic", excluding the file extension.|
||Matches files which have "magic" anywhere within the name and have ".jpg" file extension.|
||Matches files with have a letter "b" followed by any single character and then followed by "ll", such as "ball", "bell", "bill".|
