So I have long list of files that I'm trying to use regex to rename but, it looks like it does not take standard regular expressions. I’m sure I’m just doing this incorrectly.
After entering dired and
C-x C-q to make the files writable. I do
query-replace-regexp to start the regex file rename but it does not work.
I tried doing a query replace for
.eps\d.* to match everything then a replace with
.mkv with no luck.
What is the proper way to complete this task?
Starting File list example:
Show.S03E01.eps3.0.modifer322344.mkv Show.S03E02.eps3.1.someihtng.else.mkv Show.S03E03.eps3.2.lega.matters.mkv Show.S03E04.eps3.3.data.par2.mkv

Show.S03E01.mkv Show.S03E02.mkv Show.S03E03.mkv Show.S03E04.mkv
