A real unix hacker would tell you that to do
      rename *.jpeg *.jpg

you can type 

      ls *.jpeg | sed -e "s/\(..*\).jpeg/mv \1.jpeg \1.jpg/"| /bin/sh

Uses simple tools that unix always has.. (:-> no new fangled languages
needed...

You can do the same over a filesystem..

      find / -name "*.jpeg" -print | sed -e "s/\(..*\).jpeg/mv \1.jpeg 
\1.jpg/"| /bin/sh

Simple tools used to do complex jobs..

Pete.
