good morning to all of you
I'm new entry into the forum
(.... I apologize in advance for not good english)

Could you suggest me how to have the function to rename photo files name taken with CHDK?

for example, to create a series of photos where the auto-increment counter is reset to an initial value of 1 after taking 100 pictures

Thank you very much in advance

You will need to write a Lua script to do this,  using the os.rename function.   There is a little information about that here :  http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/Lua#General_notes_from_IO_and_OS_testing_on_vxworks  and

Do you confirm that I can write a LUA file with standard TXT editor?

Thanks

yes, standard txt editor. Do not use feature-full stuff like Word or something. Just plain txt:)

Remember that you HAVE TO rename the file so it has .lua extension. Otherwise it will be recognized as ubasic script ant it won't run.

CHDK has built-in text editor, but writting a long text in it would be painfull...:)
if (2*b || !2*b) {
    cout<<question
}

Compile error: poor Yorick

In principle, yes. An editor with syntax highlighting and block markers is better, e.g. notepad++.

One note: If you rename a standard image file (img_nnnn.jpg) you lose the camera preview function for this file. That means you can not see the renamed file in play mode.
