usage: mvr [-n|-i] [-u|-l] RE replacement file ...

         File rename utility, where `RE' is substituted by `replacement'
         in each file name, sed(1) style.  Asks before each file to be
         renamed.  Reports back on files that did not match the RE conditions.
         Beware that both strings (`RE' and `replacement') may need to be
         Options are:  -n  don't ask, just log to standard output
                       -i  ask for each file to be renamed (the default)
                       -u  make filenames uppercase
                       -l  make filenames lowercase
