AFAIK you can't wildcard rename on any system except DOS (and then only because the filename is in two parts - name and extension). There's no obvious behaviour that would make sense for such an operation, unless it was able to understand something like sed syntax (eg. cvs rename 's/^(.*)\.foo$/\1.bar/g') You could shell script it easily enough.. that's how I normally do that kind of thing.
