Shell script to rename to lowercase files and directories

GNU/Linux

In the GNU/Linux world, it is common to use lowercase characters to identify files and directories, to illustrate the above we show the DIRs that are found under the /etc/apache2 DIR on Debian GNU/Linux

/etc/apache2/
├── conf-available
├── conf-enabled
├── mods-available
├── mods-enabled
├── sites-available
└── sites-enabled

so if you have one or several DIRs in uppercase or lowercase and uppercase at the same time and for uniformity want to all be lowercase then you can rely on the following script.
