 WavRen (licensed under GPL by Tobias Weihmann)
 http://www.fomalhaut.de

 WavRen is a quick hack which allows you to rename a bunch of wavfiles
 (or other files) without having to type "mv 02.wav 01-songname.wav" 
 for each file. Tracks can be renumbered automatically. There may be 
 better tools around to do this but it is a neat companion to WavSplit 
 and helped me to transfer my gramophone collection to CD.

 
 USAGE
 
 wavren [FIRST-OUTPUT-TRACK-NR] [EXTENSION]

	Default first output track number is "1"
	Default extension is ".wav"
	

 DESCRIPTION

 Example. You created a directoy with files like 01.wav 02.wav ... 
 using WavSplit. Then you deleted the first and the last wavfile
 to the silence at the beginning and the end. Now you can 

	cd trackdirectory
	wavren

 The output looks as follows:

	WavRen - interactively renames all WAVs in a given directory
	Please enter new filenames, empty filename to skip a file.
	02.wav -> 

 Enter the song name, without track number and extension, or just press
 Return to skip this file. The program will ask for the next file in the 
 directory (in alphabetical order). You can stop the process by pressing 
 CTRL-C.

	02.wav -> the first song
	03.wav -> the second song
	04.wav -> the third song
	Success.

 You now have the files 01-the_first_song.wav, 02-the_second_song.wav and
 03-the_third_song.wav in the directory.
 
 At the command line you can specify a different track number to start
 with:
 
 	wavren 5

 The first track you rename will get the name 05-song_name.wav, the
 second 06-song_name.wav and so on. Remember, the track number you
 specify is the *output* track number, the original track number set
 by WavSplit is irrelevant except that WavRen sorts the files in
 alphabetical an always asks for 02.wav before 03.wav.

 You can also use WavRen to rename MP3 files:

	wavren 1 mp3

 The second argument specifies the file extension of the input files.


 LIMITATIONS / TO DO
 
 This is a quick hack. 
 Bug reports, additions and corrections welcome.
