I'm sure I'm being stupid, but where can I get mythrename from and how 
can I use it?

I found a file called mythrename.pl and saved it to my destop, but running:

mythrename.pl --help

just said file not found (or some such error). Not sure if I've got the 
right thing and scared of messing things up more.

I believe:

mythrename.pl --link /home/damian/links

is what I should run when I have the right file, but the contents of 
mythrename.pl that I have doesn't seem to mention the links option at all.
