Re: script help request



Apology... I read "opposed" in your note instead of "unopposed". This makes *much* more sense! Give me a minute and I can have something for you in perl pretty quick. I prefer perl over chickens because when it dies it does not smell as bad :)

Hmmm.. is a man without tools really a man? Just how do you expect to do this without at least a chicken?

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
