I doubt "abc" was as literal as you interpreted it to be.

    Greetings, and thank you for your thoughtful replies.
    Actually "abc" is a constant -- all the files in question are prefaced with those same 3 characters.
    So in an effort to be more concise;
    I need all the files prefaced by abc, to be followed by 4 digits.
    The files abc1000.html through abc9000.html, are already there.
    Which leaves abc1.html through abc999.html.
    I was able to rename all the files by cobbling up a script with the help of
    find(1),basename(1),cp(1), and rm(1) via for loop. But those won't help me with
    the references to those files within all the files themselves. :(
    So, in summary; how on earth can I append a 0 to abc
    on all the references to abc100.html - abc999.html? Appending 2, or three
    digits to the other references, will have the same solution. So I chose to use
    the "hundreds" list for a starting point.

    Thanks again for your thoughtful responses.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw
    use perl::always;
    my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
    print $perl_version;

      By reading and trying the solutions already provided in any of the thoughtful replies?

      If you are unable to adjust any of them to the fact that "abc" was in fact a constant (not that all of them needed adjustment), then perhaps step one is to hire somebody with programming abilities?

        ...
        As, in fact it was.

        I am just now reviewing/experimenting with all of those "thoughtful responses"
        you referenced
        By reading and trying the solutions already provided in any of the thoughtful replies?


        :)

        #!/usr/bin/perl -Tw

        my $perl_version = "5.12.4";
        print $perl_version;
