1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
import os import shutil def lower_names(dir): assert(os.path.isdir(dir)) [os.rename( os.path.join( dir, file ), os.path.join( dir, file.lower() )) for file in os.listdir(dir)] def get_dir(): input = raw_input('Enter Directory Name: ') return input if __name__ == '__main__': dir = get_dir() lower_names(dir)
