- Subject: How to rename file case-sensitive?
Is there an easy way to rename a file foo to Foo?
mv foo Foo
complains that they are the same file. From the FAQ
I learned that this is due to the limitations of
Windows which does not distinguish between case
in file names. The FAQ also says that there is a
"highly experimental" case-sensitive file system
Not being prepared yet to live in a highly
experimental way, I'm curious whether there
is a simpler solution to the rename problem
aside from the obvious hack
mv foo bar; mv bar Foo
