Description Alexey Mishustin 2021-02-22 00:28:03 UTC

Inspired by the Forum thread

Development of this package is continued by the author RMBARKER under the name "File-Rename".

RMBARKER says that the old rename has bugs: "The original rename did not check for the existence of target filenames, so had to be used with care." (at the end of the metacpan page that I linked above)

The homepage indicated on "Gentoo Packages" is 404.

There is an ebuild for File-Rename (not the last version) in src_prepare-overlay.
