Rename files in Mac OS

In Linux there is a command line

 rename 'expression' files 

through which a bunch of files can be renamed according to a rule specified by the expression. Without this command (e.g. in Mac OS), it can still be done with for loop.

 for f in `ls files`; do fn = `echo $f | sed -e 'expressions'`; mv $f $fn; done
