    recursive renaming


    I want to run this command "rename 'y/ /-/' *" on an entire directory. As is, it only runs on the current directory. If I could find a way to search for any subdirectories then I could write a quick shell script. Any suggestions?

    First, theres a non-recursive perl script, then head over the comment section where a guy posted some "ugly" shell script to to it recursively

    Sorry I cannot be of much help
