I have a folder containing thousands of files:
file1.jpeg file2.jpeg file3.jpeg
I have a text file containing a list of new filenames I want to substitute:
old_filename new_filename file3.jpeg my_dog.jpeg file1.jpeg my_cat.jpeg file2.jpeg my_goat.jpeg
I am looking for a script to rename all the files in the folder using the new filenames (or append the new name as a prefix to the original filename).
I think I need something that will search the folder, compare the name to the text file and then rename the file accordingly.
The lists and files are not sorted in any way.
