About Bulk Rename Utility
|Top Previous Next|
The Bulk Rename Utility was written by Jim Willsher using Visual C++.
Very special thanks go to Paolo Messina. Paolo provided the source code which makes it easy to create "resizeable" dialogues in MFC, and he also provided the functionality for the "tree" navigator on the left hand side of the utility. But over and above that, Paolo made enhancements to my code and fixed the bugs that I couldn't find. If it wasn't for Paolo then this utility might still be a Visual Basic application!
Thanks also go to Jeff, Nigel, Bill Pratt, David A., Frans, Chris, Neil, Zaine, Karl, Stefan and many others for their excellent suggestions, and testing of new functionality, in the Visual Basic and C++ versions. An application is nothing without input from its users.
Much of the help-file content was provided by Dave Williams. Dave is a user of the utility, so recognises what a user likes to see in a help file. I wrote the software so I know what every function does - but much of it might be completely alien to a new user, which is exactly why Dave's input was so useful!
Neil has provided some excellent feedback, both for bug-fixes and for new suggestions.
The logic for the Tip Of The Day was based upon existing work by Robert Pittenger.
The logic for the Splitter Window was based upon existing work by Maq.
The Regular Expression logic uses the excellent PCRE Library available here.
The EXIF tag extractor is by Davide Pizzolato, based on jhead by Matthias Wandel.
The new icon was very kindly created and supplied by Christoph Mayar.
