  • program files, zipping and renaming

    G'day,
    Im experimenting with a few emulators one in particular for the C64 on the PS2.

    I have just d/l this program

    http://ps2emu.dcemu.co.uk/dc64.shtml

    now, i have a cd full of games for this machine and all the file names are the usual over 8 characters, infact they are very descriptive file names.

    I want to be able to highlight a group of files somehow in some program and hit a magic rename button and it will rename the files to a 8 character length filename.

    example

    really long program name.dsk

    output

    reallylo.dsk


    2nd question.
    I want a zip program of some description that i can highlight files and or directorys and press a button and it does a multiple zip to multiple files

    example
    file1
    file2
    file3
    file4
    directory5


    high light these and gets output to

    zipfile1
    zipfile2
    zipfile3
    zipfile4
    zipdirectory5

    hope this makes sense .
    and just so you know, im using XP pro

      Without gouing in depth, it could be scripted to rename.
      But I do have a windows file renamer program that can rename file(s) in one hit, including truncation....

            your suggestion will work yes.
            but i want to keep the original file name just shorten it to 8 characters and leave the 3 extension

            12345678.exe or whatever

            i have done some reading on the net, and tomorrow i will read it again when im sober, but it looks like i can copy the files to CD using nero or whatever and i can specify the file name in the iso 9660 format standard.

            dunno. i got to read it when im sober, cos the brain is kinda in melow mode.polished off a few bottles of wine over dinner and feeling very relaxed right about now.
