Batch rename files

This JAlbum Tool will rename files in the current folder according to a specified template.
It is a bit smarter than the previous "Batch rename links" Tool. This one lets you decide if you wish to only rename links and if you wish to rename folders too.

This Tool will be included with Jalbum 8.

I take it you must refer to the format syntax:

Thank you. Not really frienly, some simple examples would help. I will stay with Bulk Rename Utility.

Not friendly, but flexible :-)

Tell me what format you need. Writing %04d means generate numbers in the format 0001 - 9999 (four digits with leading zero). Just writing %4d will give numbers like 1 - 9999

This example is helpful. Just some examples allow one to understand better how to use the tool.
I have not understood how to choose the part I want to change, for example if I want to change:
"06/22/08 8:30PM P12345" by "20080622 20:30_Maracaibo" what I have to write in the tool?

The batch rename tool is not that flexible, but the source is available so perhaps someone can take on the challenge of tweaking this.
