Ren (command)

In computing, ren (or rename) is a command in various DOS, OS/2 and Microsoft Windows command line interpreters ( shells) such as [[COMMAND.COM]], [[cmd.exe]], 4DOS, 4NT and Windows PowerShell. It is used to rename files and in some implementations also directories. It can also move a file to a new path, if it is on the same device. It is analogous to the Unix [[mv]] command. RT-11, RSX-11 and OpenVMS also provide the rename command which can be contracted to ren.

In Windows PowerShell, ren is a predefined command alias for the Rename-Item Cmdlet which basically serves the same purpose.

Ren (Confucianism)

Ren is the Confucian virtue denoting the good feeling a virtuous human experiences when being altruistic. Ren is exemplified by a normal adult's protective feelings for children. It is considered the outward expression of Confucian ideals.

Yan Hui, Confucius's most outstanding student, once asked his master to describe the rules of ren. Confucius replied, "One should see nothing improper, hear nothing improper, say nothing improper, do nothing improper." Confucius also defined ren in the following way: "wishing to be established himself, seeks also to establish others; wishing to be enlarged himself, he seeks also to enlarge others." Confucius also said, "Ren is not far off; he who seeks it has already found it." Ren is close to man and never leaves him.
