Hi,

I have the following:

Search: (?B)(.* - ).*Temporada ([0-9]).*[0-9]([0-9]{2}).*(\.[a-zA-Z]{3}$)
Replace: ../New Folder/\1\2x\3\4

Clicking on Scan returns an error telling me that files cannot contain special characters like / \,...

I thought the (?B) option was meant to allow special characters. Am I wrong? What could be the reason for my problem?

Thanks,
Fran

My apologies. I broke the path builder feature in 1.97. A beta load with the fix can be found at:

Thanks very much for letting me know about this problem.

Thanks for the patch it works fine now.

Just one more question: I have tried to rename a file to a filename that already exists. PFrank has reported a successful renaming operation, but the old file has not been changed by the new one. Is this the expected behavior? Is there any option to force to overwrite the old file o to show up an message telling the user that the file already exists?

Thanks again and best regards.

Fran

I've added an error message if the path builder feature tries to rename to an existing file. The renaming will not occur in this case.

If you like to try it, a beta load is available at:

http://www3.telus.net/pfrank/PFrankSetup1.972.exe

So far I have not included any overwrite capability in PFrank because undo support for such an action is not easily done and more importantly could be undesirable especially as far as the extra disk space that would be required.
Of course if people are willing to take the risk, I could include an option for overwrite capability (with no undo).

I think overwriting could be a dangerous thing, IMHO the way it's done now (adding a suffix to files with the same name) it's better and safer.
