RegEx Rule


This rule finds text that matches the specified RegEx pattern, and replaces it with another string. RegEx is short for Regular Expressions, which stands for special syntax for describing search and replace patterns. The RegEx syntax is explained in the appendix.

(The RegEx engine used by ReNamer is a little different from the standard PERL RegEx or Windows RegEx, so even if you are an experienced RegEx user, please have a look at the rules!)

The parameters are as follows:

Parameter Details
Expression RegEx pattern to match or find.
Replace RegEx pattern that replaces the found pattern.
Skip extension If this check box is unselected, the extension will be included in the rule.
Case-sensitive If this option is selected, ReNamer will search for the text in case-sensitive manner.

Tip: ReNamer users have posted many RegEx patterns at the User Forum. You can copy and use them.
