You know you're getting old when...

You decide to do a small python script to do something you could do using find and pax.


import os
for file in os.listdir("."):
if file.startswith("3.x"):
os.rename(file,"x"+file[2:])

(This changes the filename of all files from the current directory from "3.x*" to "x*").
