Ant Renamer

Source code


This program can rename large amounts of files and folders in few clicks. It only modifies files/folders names:

  • Changing extension
  • Replacing character strings by others
  • Inserting a character string
  • Moving characters
  • Deleting several characters
  • Enumeration
  • Name creation with mp3's Tag (ID v1.1)
  • Name creation with file's last modified date and time
  • Random names creation
  • Case change (uppercase, lowercase, first letter of each word in uppercase, ...)
  • Take names from a list/file
  • Use of EXIF info
  • Regular expressions

Availble in 16 languages : English (default), Belarusian, Chinese (simplified & traditional), Czech, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish.

Unicode file names are supported, so it is possible to rename without problems files that have names containing characters from Japanese, Chinese, Arab, etc.

Tested successfuly under various Windows versions, from 98 (with a few updated system files) and NT4 (SP4 required) up to current ones (Windows Vista, 7 and 8).

Known bugs and limits

  • Unicode is supported only on NT systems (Windows NT4, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, 8 and server versions)
  • Batch files cannot have unicode characters in their name and path
  • Ditto for the folder where the program is located, and for the command-line when it is called with parameters
  • In the same way, the translation of user interface works only if the region in Windows regional settings matches
  • Since version 2.04 the program does not start on Windows 95, it seems to be caused by a missing function on this system
  • In the "Use date & time" action, if you use a long date format (with day or month in letters, like "December" in English), it will fail for days or months that have special characters in their name (like "Décembre" in French); this bug will be corrected some day
