It’s a pretty common problem. You have a file titled firefly – 02 – the train job.mkv when it should be Firefly – 02 – The Train Job.mkv. It’s slow and arduous to rename manually especially if you have a lot of files so below is a single command to do it all for you!
rename "s/ ([a-z])/ \U\1\E/g" *.mkv
In the above example:
- \U means uppercase
- \1 means the first match (in our case that’s the first alpha after a space)
- \E means end uppercase
- *.mkv applies the rename command to all files ending in .mkv in the current folder.
