This question already has an answer here:
I have about a thousand files that all look something like this:
20091208170014.nc 20091211150704.nc 20091214131328.nc 20091217111953.nc 20091220092643.nc 20091223073308.nc 20091226053932.nc 20091229034557.nc 20091208171946.nc 20091211152610.nc
The first eight are the date, the last 6 are consecutive numbers, but the difference between those numbers isn't the same between the files. I want the last six numbers to be consecutive and always with the same step. For example:
20091208000001.nc 20091211000002.nc 20091214000003.nc 20091217000004.nc 20091220000005.nc 20091223000006.nc 20091226000007.nc 20091229000008.nc 20091208000009.nc 20091211000010.nc
I checked several questions on this site using
mmv and others like https://www.ostechnix.com/how-to-rename-multiple-files-at-once-in-linux/ but none of them can explain to me how to have consecutive numbers in my name.
To differentiate this from the question Batch rename files to a sequential numbering, the sequential ordering must be based on the last six digits, ignoring the embedded date in the first eight characters completely..
