I wish to rename music files which have been ordered <Artist> - <Title> to <Title> - <Artist>. I do not understand the PERL programming language. Help please.
The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night.mp3
A Hard Day's Night - The Beatles.mp3

There is two solutions to your problem.
If your MP3 files have prober ID3 tags you can construct a new file name based on the ID3 tags. Use the New Name method and in the text box write
<ID3 Title> - <ID3 Artist>.<Ext>
The second solution is to use regular expressions. Regular expressions is primarily made for advanced users and programmers but I can help you use it for this case. Use the Replace and configure it as this:
Text to be replaced: (.*) - (.*)
Replace with: \2 - \1
Use regular expressions: Checked
Apply to: Name
I hope this helps you.
