contract for name changing program

Discussion in 'C++' started by Stanley Braverman, Sep 12, 2004.

  1. I need a program that can remove a selected "-" as in
    Children's-Nursery Rhymes - Three Little Kittens

    to be able to select the first or second instance of a "-" from a directory
    full of similer type file names.(ZIP)

    More examples:
    8213-01 - Gill, Vince - Take Your Memory With You

    Would like to remove the first 2 instances of dashes and then take remaning
    8213 01 and place at end of file so final should look like:
    Gill, Vince - Take Your Memory With You 8213 01

    next example:
    Sava08-10 - Grand Tour, The - Jones, George TO
    Sava08 10 Grand Tour, The - Jones, George THEN
    Grand Tour, The - Jones, George Sava08 10 THEN SWITCH TO
    Jones, George - Grand Tour, The Sava08 10
    If able to supply program please contact me at:


    TIA

    What you are asking for, you need a simple script, not a C++ program.
    (Translation: We are as expensive as Mortons!)

    Google in your area for a users group for PC users, attend a meeting, and
    ask for someone to write you a clever batch file or WScript thing. They
    could write you it on their notebook on the spot. Then buy them a beer or
    something.

    Sounds like you are manipulating electronic book names or MP3 file names and if
    you are trying to do this in windows then what you need is MP3 Book Helper -
    google for that and download - nice little program for manipulating file names
    in windows.
