I have a zillion PDF's (magazines mostly but a lot of eBooks too).
The dates on these have evolved over the years but I have finally settled on the following format:
magazine name yyyy-mm
A lot (thousands) of my older file name are in various other formats, like:
magazine name month yyyy....or...magazine name mmyy
How can I help to automate the renames with regex or a script (I understand scripting a little better, but not by much)?
I'd like to take mmyy and turn it in to yymm at the very least, and hopefully handle mmyyyy as well. I can handle a laborious script to handle months in long format (unless someone can offer a better solution).
BTW, this is so the magazines will sort in date order in case anyone was wondering why
