My first programming in Linux...

I just realized that in my entire career life, I've written thousand lines of code just to solve other people's problem (my employee). Never once I did it for myself. Sometime it makes me wonder, can't my problem (computer related) be solve with my programming skills? Today for the first time, I solved my own problem with programming. Though it might sounds odd, but yeah, I did it :)

I have a collection of Bleach anime series. Filename was in format with prefix "Bleach - xxx.avi". I wanted to remove the prefix and try to do it manually, but doing so with 200 over files is kind of annoying. I knew there's a way to rename file extension from uppercase to lowercase or even adding prefix easily with just one single line of command. But I'm not sure whether it's possible to remove the prefix (if there's a linux command guru out there knows how to do it, kindly show it to me).

Since I'm crazy learning Perl scripting lately (thanks to my latest assignment), I've created a script for my problem. My first programming in Linux!!!
    #!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;

my $directory = @ARGV[0];

opendir(DIRECTORYHANDLER, $directory) || die("Cannot open directory");
my @thecontents = readdir(DIRECTORYHANDLER);
closedir(DIRECTORYHANDLER);

my $counter = 1;

foreach my $content (@thecontents)
{
if($content =~ /Bleach\s-\s\d+.avi/i)
{
my $fullpath = "$directory/$content";
print "$fullpath\n";

my $newname = sprintf("%03d.avi", $counter);
my $newpath = "$directory/$newname";

rename($fullpath, $newpath);

$counter++;
}
}

To be honest, once I knew how simple it is to read a file and passing it to a variable in Perl script, I've started to love it. My understanding on regular expression is getting better and thanks to Ady for encouraging me to use Perl instead of .NET console app for the assignment.

Perl trim function...

    # Perl trim function to remove whitespace from the start and end of the string
sub trim($)

return $string;
}

# Left trim function to remove leading whitespace

# Right trim function to remove trailing whitespace
sub rtrim($)
