One possible method to map the file names:

irb(main):001:0> a = %w{ test01 test02 test03 test09 test10 test11 }
=> [“test01”, “test02”, “test03”, “test09”, “test10”, “test11”]
irb(main):002:0> b = a.map{|i| i.scan(/([^\d]+)(\d+)/).flatten }
=> [[“test”, “01”], [“test”, “02”], [“test”, “03”], [“test”, “09”],
[“test”, “10”], [“test”, “11”]]
irb(main):003:0> c = b.map{|i| [ i[0], i[1].to_i ].join }
=> [“test1”, “test2”, “test3”, “test9”, “test10”, “test11”]

Below is an equivalent perl script that I’ve used for years and years.
It should be exceedingly simple to convert to ruby (or just use it as-
is) and/or simplify for your requirements.

You’d use it like so:

% rename ‘s/(\D)0+(\d)/$1$2/’ aa/*

Here ya go:

Try this:
Dir.glob(“aa/*”).each{|f|File.rename(f,f.gsub(/test0+(?=\d)/,“test”))}
