"no rename" rational?

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

from an "old" user of AutoIt

I know that "AutoIt lacks a rename function" (as said in the help file)

I always wonder the reason behind and didn't found anything on the forum (may have been answered already in old forum platform :idiot: )

what about a DOS rename command?? (also not found in forums)

it keeps me awake for several nights :oops::ranting:

please HELP ;)

My guess is, that there is no windows API (which AutoIt presumably is based on) specifically

for or named RenameFile or similar, the API for this in MoveFile, and that is why it is mentioned under

that function.

Sleep well.

Renaming a file is the same thing as moving the file, as the snowman said.

Well this is the whole sentence in the helpfile so which part is unclear?:

Because AutoIt lacks a "FileRename" function, use FileMove to rename a file!

Well a little bit of 'due diligence' would have resulted in you not loosing sleep.

Furthermore, the use of move as rename is standard in many parts of the software world. For example, on unix the standard way of renaming files are with the "mv" command.
