This is merely a wrapper for the built-in function movefile, which I find ok. At least, more than a year ago I was not aware of the rename-capability of movefile. See this thread
Note however: the last entry in this thread suggests to use the DOS command
dos('ren file1 file2')
On my system (windows xp) this is at least ten times faster.
