The regex will now skip anything with an '@'in the filename on the
assumption it's already in the correct format. Uncomment the os.rename line
once you're satisfied you won't mangle anything.
import glob
import os
import re
for filename in glob.glob('*.abook'):
newname = filename
newname = re.sub(r'^[^@]+\.abook$', '', filename)
if filename != newname:
print "rename", filename, "to", newname
#os.rename(filename, newname)

Thx for the reply,

I would first have to list all files matching user.abook then rename
them to
us** something like Im still new to python and haven't
much experience with the re module

import os
import re

emails = os.popen('ls').readlines()
for email in emails:
print email, '-->',
print re.findall(r'\.abook$', email)

Subject: regex help

I am trying to put together a regular expression that will
rename users address books on our server due to a recent
change we made.* Users with address books user.abook need
to be changed to us** I'm having trouble
with the regex. Any help would be appreciated.

import re

emails = ('foo.abook', '', '', 'john.doe.abook')

for email in emails:
print email, '-->',
print re.sub(r'\.abook$', '', email)
