I didn't want to say something against "ren" - I only wanted to show the problem of dozens of similar programs.
Our community of programmers (and of course users) of free software should IMHO concentrate on improving existing software instead of writing new ones.
Freshmeat daily shows new examples for this - I wonder if the existing software isn't worth beeing really worked on to produce something that is 100%.
Are dozens of beta-quality programs better than one mature one?
What about good ol' mmv?
I wonder why there was a need to write such a tool from scratch.
The well-known mmv (Multiple Move) did a quite good job - why didn't the developer of ren try to improve mmv???
We need good tools - not thousands of quite-ok ones!!!
