renumberfile(NAME, P) renumbers the files matching NAME having an index
following the substring P, using consecutive indices starting from 1.
Wildcards (*) and brackets (see rdir) may be used in NAME. If P is
present several times in a filename, uses only the last occurrence.
renumberfile works only in the current directory (NAME cannot contain
renumberfile(NAME, P, NEWNUM) does the same, using NEWNUM to renumber
the files. If NEWNUM is a number, uses consecutive indices starting
from NEWNUM. If NEWNUM is an array, uses it to renumber the files. By
renumberfile(NAME, P, NEWNUM, NZ) specifies the number of 0 pading the
index (e.g., '302' paded with 5 zeros is '00302'). By default, NZ=5.
renumberfile(NAME, P, NEWNUM, NZ, OPT), where OPT is 'dironly',
'fileonly' or 'filedir', renumbers only the directory names, the file
names, or both (by default), respectively.
If renumberfile('DSC*.JPG','DSC') is used in a directory that
contains 100 JPG-files with arbitrary file numbers, the files are
renumbered as 'DSC00001.JPG'...'DSC00100.JPG'.
renumberfile('DSC*.JPG','DSC',401) does the same, renumbering
the files as 'DSC00401.JPG'...'DSC00500.JPG'.
renumberfile('DSC*.JPG','DSC',1,3) does the same, renumbering
the files as 'DSC001.JPG'...'DSC100.JPG'.
