How to replace apostrophes in the files of a directory
One of my client’s gave me a couple audio files to add to his website. I do this through an index in a database. However, since they have apostrophes, they cause broken links.
I wanted a command to rename all of the files by removing all apostrophes while retaining all other characters in the file name.
I am using and Ubuntu server.
