Hello,
I have a big file in wich I would like to rename inside exactly the string '_ME' and not rename in case we have 'ABC_MELANGE'. Is there a way to do it by using a shell script?
Please help me. Any tip will be apreciated.

The file is like described bellow:

toto test@GR_4||4_35_1_ME||4_35_17
DntowoB.nts
toto test@DT_3||4_35_1_ME||4_35_17
DntsGoF.nts
toto test@FAIFAI11-O8M5_south_e9000/A18_06_MEmCentralNW_PAB/07
