Description:
How to batch rename files to the first date found in the files?

It can be only in these two formats, like 1.txt in a seperate line, or like 2.txt in the middle of the sentence. But it should pick only the first date found in the file.
Input Sample:
1.txt

...679 words
1 January 2014
The Guardian...

2.txt

...TransGraph Research, 31 December 2013, 1991 words,...
Output Sample:
dd-mm-yy_xxx.txt

Output needs to be converted into the above format where the "_xxx" appears when we have more than one file with the same date.

ex.
26-01-14_001.txt
26-01-14_002.txt
