Beautiful Simplicity

RenPhoric is a simple little file renaming tool that I have been using for the past few days in an effort to get on top of a mess of media files.  After using a number of different file renamers over the years.... RenPhoric is just bliss. 

It's just such an elegantly simple concept.  Treat the file names as a block of text and use text processing tools on them... then apply the changes back to the files. 
If you're familiar with text processing, pattern search and replace and regex then its easy to apply these same skills to get lots done.  Fair enough, there are other tools that work on similar principles... but this just works so simply.  Showing the result of the changes while you work.  Maybe thats what I find so attactive... the immediate feedback... anyway.... I'm a convert.
