pathmut is a path string manipulation utility
This was made because I'm tired of resorting to
cut -d. -f1 or whatever other random core util to just extract some information from path names.
Important to know this utility only works with path strings and doesn't touch the file system whatsoever.
Mutates path strings.
Usage: pathmut [COMPONENT|COMMAND]
ext Read or update file extension
stem Read or update file stem
prefix Read or update file prefix
name Read or update file name
parent Read or update parent directory
first Read or update first component
help Print this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)
-h, --help Print help information
-V, --version Print version information
This utility is really just a command line wrapper for Rust's Path struct API. Precise details on exactly how these commands work are found there.
--replacearguments for every command
- Show help by default
- Read from stdin, all at once
- Allow passing multiple file paths as args (not stdin)
