2A_Apple_VC_20180101.txt
2A_Apple_VC_20180201.txt
2A_Apple_VC_20180301.txt
etc.

How can I insert the phrase Vendor right after 2A_ for all the filenames in that directory that starts with 2A_, permanently changing the filenames to:

2A_Vendor_Apple_VC_20180101.txt
2A_Vendor_Apple_VC_20180201.txt
2A_Vendor_Apple_VC_20180301.txt

You can try File#rename

Dir["2A_*.txt"].each do |f|
  File.rename(f, f.sub('2A_', '2A_Vendor_'))
end

Or with path

path = 'your_path_here'
Dir.glob("#{path}/2A_*.txt").each do |f|
  File.rename(f, f.sub('2A_', '2A_Vendor_'))

You can get a list of the file paths in the directory with Dir.glob:

Then rename using String#sub and FileUtils.mv or File.rename:

    File.rename path, new_path

  • There is no need to do if path =~ /2A_/ for each iteration as Dir.glob("#{path}/2A_*.txt") do it for you, so you ll have no need to iterate all the files
  • but probably its enough for you case)
