Often times when you transfer files from Windows to Linux, they end up with all Capital letters. While generally, this isn't much of a problem, sometimes this includes large directories and Linux will not see "FILENAME.EXE" the same as "filename.exe". The solution is to issue the following perl command to rename everything in a directory from upper to lower case:

perl -le 'rename $_, lc( $_ ) foreach <*>'

This "tip" is available through the random tip son the frontpage.
