Patch to add some functionality to the unique modifier
My aim was to replace my current bash script for renaming my pictures. My
renaming scheme is:
where the uniq modifier is an alphabetic character in case of naming conflicts.
So I implemented an option to user alphabetic characters instead of numbers and
to use a custom separator (or none at all in my case).
Unfortunately it turned out that there is one major problem with the entire
advancedrename module: Renaming is done file by file, so a single renaming
process can only be aware of already renamed files. Thus the first file that
will be conflicting does not get the *uniq* attachment, e.g. two conflicting
files are renamed:
while the desirable thing to happen would be
However I do not see how this could be easily achieved, so I will keep using my
script. However this functionality might be useful to someone, so you might as
well integrate it.
