    Hi All,
    New member of the forums and have a newbie question.
    I have about 400 files in a folder with same extension. For ex. name1.htb.mat,
    nam2.htb.mat etc. I want to remove the .htb part from each file name, so the new file names will be name1.mat, name2.mat. Is there a way to do this in Mac? Or via Unix?
    Thanks in advance for the help.
    SR.

    Isn't there some free software out there that will do this too? I'm curious to see all the different ways to do this.
