[oclug] filename renaming

I'd like to have a script to rename groups of files by including the
directory name in the revised filename.
Ex: in directory "A", I have files 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
I would like to rename the files to A_1, A_2, A_3, A_4 and A_5.
To do this, I have so far used the "mmv" command but I still have to
type in the directory name for each batch. Is there a way to capture
the directory name and place it in a variable?
I have looked at "pwd" but that gives me the whole path.
I don't mind using command line but I am not a programmer. Any
suggestion is welcome.
