changinf filename case - migrating from Windows to Linux

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by Svato, Apr 13, 2005.

  1. #1
    I have a site, which has over a hundred pages. All pages contain links, and these links are case insensitive. For example a file has this link:
    <A HREF="MyFile.HTM">
    Now - the files are named in different formats, some uppercase, some lowecase. I need to move the site to a Linux server and I was wondering if anyone knows a way of changining all the filenames to lowercase.
    I am not talking about renaming all files to lowercase, that is not a problem. The problem is to change value of all HREF attributes to lowercase sitewide. Go through each page and change every single link to lowercase. I couldn't figure out how to automate it. Maybe someone has a PHP script which woudl locate the HREF attributes and fix this?
    Or any other suggestions?
    Thanks.

    You can use sed and awk (there's a function called tolower) on Linux.

    This should get you going (no line breaks - it's all one line!):

    $ awk -- '{match($0,"href=\"([^\"]+)\"",m);h=m[1];if(length(h)==0){print $0;}else{h="href=\""tolower(h)"\"";gsub("href=\"[^\"]+\"",h,$0);print $0;}}' filename.html

    Use the for command to process more than one file.

    Thanks J.D. I'll try that. Interesting approach.

    I still can't believe that tools like Dreamweaver can't do that. I would think that migrating from Windows to Linux is relatively common...
