Quick and easy command to instantly change filenames from mixed upper case to all lower case names.
This one is short and sweet and a great command snippet to keep handy when others give you mixed case files not knowing Linux understands these differences literally (as different files).
# CHANGES ALL FILE NAMES THAT INCLUDE UPPERCASE FILENAMES INTO LOWERCASE
# STEP ONE: ENTER THE FOLDER THAT CONTAINS YOUR FILES
# STEP TWO: RUN THIS COMMAND
for i in $( ls | grep [A-Z] ); do mv -i $i `echo $i | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z'`; done
