1 RENAME

Changes all or part of a file specification of an existing disk file or disk directory. Format RENAME input-filespec[,...] output-filespec 2 Parameters input-filespec[,...] Specifies the name of one or more files whose specifications are to be changed. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are allowed in the directory specification, file name, file type, or version number fields of the file specification. When wildcard characters are used, all files whose specifications satisfy the wildcard fields are renamed. output-filespec Provides the new file specification to be applied to the input file. The RENAME command uses the device, directory, file name, and file type of the input file as defaults for fields in the output file that are either unspecified, or are indicated by the asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters. Wildcard characters in corresponding fields of the input and output file specification result in multiple rename operations. The RENAME command supplies output file version numbers in the following ways: o If the output file specification contains an explicit version number, that version number is used. o If the output file specification contains an asterisk (*) or a percent sign (%) wildcard character as the version number, the version number of the input file is used. o If the input file specification contains an asterisk (*) or a percent sign (%) wildcard character as the version number, the version number of each input file names a corresponding output file. o If no file exists with the same file name and type as the output file, the new file is assigned a version number of 1. o If a file already exists with the same file name and type as the output file, the next higher version number is used (unless the /NONEWVERSION qualifier is specified). 2 Qualifiers /BACKUP Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /BACKUP qualifier selects files according to the dates of their most recent backups. This qualifier is incompatible with the /CREATED, /EXPIRED, and /MODIFIED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /BEFORE /BEFORE[=time] Selects only those files dated prior to the specified time. You can specify time as absolute time, as a combination of absolute and delta times, or as one of the following keywords: BOOT, LOGIN, TODAY (default), TOMORROW, or YESTERDAY. Specify one of the following qualifiers with the /BEFORE qualifier to indicate the time attribute to be used as the basis for selection: /BACKUP, /CREATED (default), /EXPIRED, or /MODIFIED. For complete information on specifying time values, see the OpenVMS User's Manual or the topic SPECIFY Date_Time in online help. /BY_OWNER /BY_OWNER[=uic] Selects only those files whose owner user identification code (UIC) matches the specified owner UIC. The default UIC is that of the current process. Specify the UIC by using standard UIC format as described in the OpenVMS Guide to System Security. /CONFIRM /CONFIRM /NOCONFIRM (default) Controls whether a request is issued before each rename operation to confirm that the operation should be performed on that file. The following responses are valid: YES NO QUIT TRUE FALSE Ctrl/Z 1 0 ALL <Return> You can use any combination of uppercase and lowercase letters for word responses. Word responses can be abbreviated to one or more letters (for example, T, TR, or TRU for TRUE), but these abbreviations must be unique. Affirmative answers are YES, TRUE, and 1. Negative answers include: NO, FALSE, 0, and pressing the Return key. Entering QUIT or pressing Ctrl/Z indicates that you want to stop processing the command at that point. When you respond by entering ALL, the command continues to process, but no further prompts are given. If you type a response other than one of those in the list, DCL issues an error message and redisplays the prompt. /CREATED /CREATED (default) Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /CREATED qualifier selects files based on their dates of creation. This qualifier is incompatible with the /BACKUP, /EXPIRED, and /MODIFIED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /EXCLUDE /EXCLUDE=(filespec[,...]) Excludes the specified files from the rename operation. You can include a directory but not a device in the file specification. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters are allowed in the file specification. However, you cannot use relative version numbers to exclude a specific version. If you specify only one file, you can omit the parentheses. /EXPIRED Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /EXPIRED qualifier selects files according to their expiration dates. (The expiration date is set with the SET FILE/EXPIRATION_DATE command.) This qualifier is incompatible with the /BACKUP, /CREATED, and /MODIFIED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time qualifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /INHERIT_SECURITY /INHERIT_SECURITY /NOINHERIT_SECURITY (default) Controls whether the security profile (UIC, protection code, and ACL) of the renamed file is altered. If you specify /INHERIT_ SECURITY, a new security profile is generated, as if a new file had been created with the new file and directory names. See the OpenVMS Guide to System Security or online help (Hints topic) for a description of how a profile is assigned. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG (default) Displays the file specification of each file as it is renamed. /MODIFIED Modifies the time value specified with the /BEFORE or the /SINCE qualifier. The /MODIFIED qualifier selects files according to the dates on which they were last modified. This qualifier is incompatible with the /BACKUP, /CREATED, and /EXPIRED qualifiers, which also allow you to select files according to time attributes. If you specify none of these four time modifiers, the default is the /CREATED qualifier. /NEW_VERSION /NEW_VERSION (default) /NONEW_VERSION Assigns a new version number if an output file specification is the same as that of an existing file. The /NONEW_VERSION qualifier displays an error message if an output file specification is the same as that of an existing file. The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard characters appearing in the version field of an input or output file overrides these qualifiers. /SINCE /SINCE[=time] Selects only those files dated after the specified time. You can specify time as absolute time, as a combination of absolute and delta times, or as one of the following keywords: BOOT, LOGIN, TODAY (default), TOMORROW, or YESTERDAY. Specify one of the following qualifiers with the /SINCE qualifier to indicate the time attribute to be used as the basis for selection: /BACKUP, /CREATED (default), /EXPIRED, or /MODIFIED. For complete information on specifying time values, see the OpenVMS User's Manual or the topic SPECIFY Date_Time in online help. 2 Examples 1.$ RENAME AVERAGE.OBJ OLDAVERAGE The RENAME command in this example renames the highest existing version of the file AVERAGE.OBJ to OLDAVERAGE.OBJ. If no file named OLDAVERAGE.OBJ currently exists, the new file is assigned a version number 1. 2.$ RENAME/NONEW_VERSION SCANLINE.OBJ;2 BACKUP.OBJ The RENAME command in this example renames the file SCANLINE.OBJ;2 to BACKUP.OBJ;2. The /NONEW_VERSION qualifier ensures that, if BACKUP.OBJ;2 already exists, the RENAME command does not rename the file, but instead reports the error. 3.$ RENAME *.TXT;* *.OLD;* The RENAME command in this example renames all versions of all files with the file type TXT to have the file type OLD. The file names and version numbers are not changed. 4.$ RENAME WATER.TXT [.MEMOS] The RENAME command in this example changes the directory name of WATER.TXT from your default directory to the MEMOS subdirectory. (The RENAME command moves the file to another directory.) 5.$ RENAME [MALCOLM.TESTFILES]SAVE.DAT []TEST The RENAME command in this example renames the file SAVE.DAT in the directory MALCOLM.TESTFILES to TEST.DAT. The new file is moved to the current default directory.
