Hello all!

Just for example:

COPY_EXISTING_REGEXP ~sw1h0\([1-9]\).itm~ ~override/sw2h0\1.itm~

is apparently a wrong expression.

What is the right one?

Thank you.

I don't think you can do it that way.

You could perform a COPY_EXISTING_REGEXP with BUT_ONLY to find the files and add them to an array.  Then you could loop through that, generating the output filenames and creating the clones with a COPY_EXISTING command.  (Edit: Or you could skip the array and do the same thing via an INNER_ACTION in the COPY_EXISTING_REGEXP.)

Strictly speaking, unless you wish to make a copy of file with a different name, you don't even need to specify the destination's filename, this:

COPY_EXISTING_REGEXP ~sw1h0\([1-9]\).itm~ ~override~

is perfectly fine to do.

I thought the OP wanted to mass-rename files using regexps. Aww, I coded that all for nothing.
