On my debian system I have the rename program, but I remember if it was
in its own package or not. I think it will do what you want fairly
easily. You can try the following.
rename 'tr/A-Z/a-z/' *
That renames everything in a directory, but not recursively. I have
found rename to ve invaluable when dealing with lots of files which need
to conform to a naming convension. Good luck.
Unix is a user friendly operating system. It just picks its friends more
carefully than others.
