Hi, i'm wondering if there's a function to get all the file names/file info in a directory?
If so, is there another function to rename files/edit file info?
I'm trying to rename music tracks with file names "title - artist" and change this just to "title" which i will probably use regexp for.

What do you mean by "file info"?

By file info i mean all the information you would see if you were looking at the file in windows explorer. For example, file size, file type, title, comments etc..
