Re: regexp for rename command - please help!

(Sorry, forgot to adapt the regular expression in my previous mail.)
The problem is not the syntax of rename but the name of the files beginning with
'-'. So try something like

$ rename 's|^\./---||g' ./*

where the shell  expands the filenames to "./---vol1 ./---vol2 ...". Then the
rename command doesn't interpret the filenames as switches.
