comment cannot rename files with `[ ]` on its name?
Should you wish to experiment, Debian's rename (perl "alternative") does not use anything expected like search.cpan.org/~rmbarker/File-Rename-0.20 , but instead something exceedingly ancient (from the same author, rmb) which you can extract from the source patch package here: packages.debian.org/wheezy/perl

This is true, strictly though the error is a perl error message, arising from the use of perl rename command.

comment How do I find number of vertical lines available in the terminal?
LINES and COLUMNS are only set by some shells. bash sets them, but only for an interactive shell (and it does not export them).
