Hi Qazwart, thanks for your reply.
The problem is that I don't want to rename ONE directory, but ALL the
"search" directories in a directory tree.
And the "search" directory may be located inside another "search"
directory, so getting the very first match is not enough... I need all
of them to be replaced...
I guess it needs to be performed using a totally different strategy. Any

maybe something like
<mapper id="renameMapper" type="glob" from="**\search" to="**\search_"

 <!-- first copy step, all but those search directories -->
 <copy todir="Y:/test_" verbose="true">
   <fileset dir="Y:/test" excludes="**/search/**" />

 <!-- second copy step, copy all search dirs incl. rename to search_
 <copy todir="Y:/test_" verbose="true">
   <fileset dir="Y:/test" includes="**/*" />
   <mapper refid="renameMapper" />

use on your own risk ;-)

i didn't get it how to put those two copy steps in one step only,
but it seems to work anyway !?
