If you copy this text file into
and mark it as executable in its permissions, you can invoke it by right-clicking inside of any folder and rename all the files in that particular folder to have "clean" names. For instance,
Bach + Benjamin Britten + English Chamber Orchestra + Wandsworth School Boys' Choir - So that the word might be fulfilled (recitative).mp3
will be renamed to
Apostrophes and other important symbols are replaced with dashes to signify their absence; it's possible to edit the code to remove them completely. Ampersands and plus signs are replaced with a solitary "n" (fish 'n chips, mate?) which isn't ideal, but still leaves the original name of the file readable- which is useful in mp3 filenames containing artist names [florence_n_the_machine]. If this annoys you, you can edit this.
Code Credits: Several posters at Ubuntu Forums and blogs ( /  / ), combined together with trial and error + the basic terminal rename functions. The sources I used other that my own experiences are credited within the script itself as credits.
Using this code in a .php web page file can import another page and place it inside the first page seamlessly. I use it to easily edit the navigation bars and headers/footers of complete websites. The imported content can be styled: I typically place this code within a <div> so that it can be easily styled and rearranged. Editing the file (in this case, sidebar.html) will cause the edited version to show on every page using it. Pages using this code must have .php suffixes, although the files they import do not. This will work on an index.php but not on an identical index.html.
<?php @ require_once ("sidebar.html"); ?>
Code Credits: It's a bit of really basic PHP code I've used for years, and I honestly don't remember where I originally got it. Searching for the source online didn't help, because it's so basic and pops up everywhere... On the upside, that means that my original source probably wasn't the original source to begin with, so a credit link back is a bit less pressing...
