Subject [greenstone-users] Massive rename of collection documents
Hello all.

Since I still have problems with files named under non-Latin encoding
(namely Greek encoding), I have decided to attempt a rename to all files
via a mapping from Greek characters to Latin characters. However, the
files have already been annotated and I wish to keep the metadata.

I plan to create an automated script to perform the rename, however I
need to know one or two things:.
Are the metadata for the files stored in a flat-file db? Is there
already a simple ( or even complex :-) ) way to perform the rename
massively, without losing the metadata?

Thank you
George G.
