You could have just used BASH for this trivial task ;)

for F in *.mas; do mv $F ${F/.mas/.html}; done

Update: stupid typo fixed... Thanks jeffa

    HERETIC!!! >:(

    Just kidding! ;) I actually did pull off a BASH for loop:

    for i in `ls *.mas`; do tidy -asxhtml -clean -i -wrap 200 $i > $i.new; + done
    And then a Perl one-liner to strip off the .new ... and then i realized that tidy as a -m option to modify the file in place!

    UPDATE: Why Tanktalus? Because you weren't here at the time to show me a better way. :P Thanks for the tips, guys.

      Um ... why "ls *.mas" in backticks when you can eliminate the subprocess using just "*.mas"? ;-)

      Also, your renaming ... that's what /usr/bin/rename is for: "rename .mas .html *.mas" ;-)

    Or rename mas html *.mas...

      Correct, like Tanktalus also suggested (half a day before you ;-) The "problem" with that is that you might run into problems if you have a lot of files. At least with running a Linux kernel(not sure with other OSes), you'll run into the 'Argument list too long' error (or you may have tweaked your MAX_ARG_PAGES kernel setting).
