also try 'rename' which is a perl script (it 'comes with the
meat' since it's part of the basic perl installation)--

DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #29 from Will Trillich <email@example.com>
Console GIBBERISH? Suddenly you're seeing Russian or Korean or
box-like text on your console or xterm (or rxvt) -- probably
after viewing a binary file, right? :) Enter "reset" at the
command line, or try embedding a control-O (letter oh) into
