Mass par2 repair amazingly simple.

$ echo *.par2

or to get one filename per line :

$ for i in *.par2; do echo $i; done

So to mass-repair everything in a directory simply type :

$ for i in *.par2; do par2repair $i; done


EDIT : only works if the extension in "vol**+**.PAR2" is capitalized :-(

I found your info useful and get around the case sensitivity like this.

for i in *.[pP][aA][rR]2; do par2 r $i; done

Hope it helps someone else!

I had spaces in the filenames. This one did the trick for me:
for i in "*.par2"; do par2repair $i; done
