I took the time to set up a typepad account just so I could comment and say THANK YOU for taking the time to post this information. I had already discovered that there was a c version and a perl version, but your link to "the Perl-ish rename found on CPAN" was hugely useful. That's what I ended up going with rather than continuing down my fruitless path of trying to extract just the rename binary from the util-linux package for use on CentOS (Centos is in the dark-ages with the util-linux package. The latest version that that any repositories I was able to find point to util-linux-ng 2.17.2, which doesn't support backreferences, or the -n option, among other things). Thanks again!
