Help needed with renaming a file



I have the name of the file as >BCV_02749_lup452_LUP52_VAL_GH3+GH36 ; MatureChain: 18-230
but I want to change it to >BCV_02749_LUP52. I have several hundred of files like that and they have the same naming format and for all I want to keep the first and the third characters. Can someone help with the regex code?

Thank you!


Atom has no file-rename feature.

Also, this isn’t really an atom editor topic. You should google for forums that discuss regex’s. There are also a zillion regex tutorials on the web.

BTW, for renaming files in linux use the rename command.
