Magic File Renamer Help
Command Line Usage Guide

Magic File Renamer supports Command-Line Parameters, which can be used for automatic renaming, for example, from a batch file.

Usage:

Automatic Mode:

MFR /A:filename|pathname|filemask [/P:preset-name|/PN:preset-index] [/R] [/DIRS] [/HIDDEN] [/AUTOORDER] [/RESULTS] [/CONFIRM]

In auto mode, file must be added to the rename list and a preset must be seleceted through comamnd line parameters. MFR will then process the filenames in the rename list and close itself.

/A:filename Adds one filename to the rename list.
/A:pathname Adds all files in the folder 'pathname' to the rename list. If /R is included too, files in subfolders will be added also.
/A:filemask Adds all files matching the mask 'filemask' to the rename list. If /R is included too, matching files in subfolders will be added also.
/P:preset-name Loads the presets 'preset-name'.
/PN:number Loads the preset with index of 'number' (where 1 is the first preset).
/R Switch 'Folder Recursing' ON (process also sub-folders). (Default is OFF)
/DIRS Process folder names too. (Default is OFF)
/HIDDEN Process hidden files too. (Default is OFF)
/AUTOORDER Switch auto-order for rename list ON. Otherwise, files will be ordered as added. (Default is OFF)
/RESULTS Show renaming results after processing. (Default is OFF)
/CONFIRM Confirm each single file rename. (Default is OFF)


GUI Mode:

In GUI mode, MFR will not auto-process files in the rename list and will not close itself.

MFR [filename|pathname|filemask]

filename Add 'filename' to the rename list.
pathname Opens File List in 'pathname'.
filemask Adds all files matching the mask 'filemask' to the rename list.


Examples:

MFR /A:C:\mp3\alternative /P:MP3 /R /AUTOORDER

MFR "/A:D:\My Wavs" /A:d:\wavs1\a*.wav /A:c:\windows\chimes.wav /PN:11 /R /CONFIRM

MFR "C:\My Documents\document.doc"
