script help request



Ok, my perl-fu is non-existent.

I have a dir on an FTP server that contains multiple files that have a
naming structure like so

a_20061002201644_b_R01C002_c_30_d_81230_e_FOO_f_02_g_blah.txt

the value d_<whatever> will be a number that is actually can be mapped
to a name
for example, 81230 will be jsmith
82111 will be mdoe

etc.

I want to replace the number string with the name in each of, say 500
files & run it out of cron

pointers or clues would be welcome. I am militantly unopposed to using
*any* tool, (perl, php, sed & awk or waving dead chickens) to get the
job done
