Sorry, it doesn't seem to work.

For the sample directory tree I provided, it just copies

/tmp/myDir/test/hello/searchstrings/Hello.html

to

/tmp/myDir_/test/hello/searchstrings/Hello.html

but nothing else gets copied or renamed...


(For the record, the sample was:

/tmp/myDir/test/hello/search/Hello.html
/tmp/myDir/test/hello/search/nice/lists/search/Greetings.html
/tmp/myDir/test/hello/searchstrings/Hello.html
/tmp/myDir/search/Regards.html

which has to be renamed to:

/tmp/myDir/test/hello/search_/Hello.html
/tmp/myDir/test/hello/search_/nice/lists/search_/Greetings.html
/tmp/myDir/test/hello/searchstrings/Hello.html
/tmp/myDir/search_/Regards.html
)

Probably, something similar can be performed using the glob mapper as
you suggested, but it will fail when there is a 'search' directory
inside another 'search' directory (as far as I understand...).
