Script to cut a Filename after a specified character


I have to cut a lot of filenames after the last “-”. Is there any solution available to do this?

Cutting after the first “-” is easy, but the last?

Any new script would do exactly what the existing Rename Using Regex script (available from the Support Assistant’s Extras) already does. There a numerous Regex resources on the net to help you build the search and replace rules. It’s not complicated

Or you could go to, and find out about text item delimiters.
That would save you from using a shell command in your script, which is always slow.
