MV(1)                                                       MV(1)

     NAME
          mv - move files

     SYNOPSIS
          mv fromfile tofile
          mv fromfile ... todir

     DESCRIPTION
          Mv moves fromfile to tofile. If the files are in the same
          directory, fromfile is simply renamed; a previously existing
          file named tofile will be (silently) removed.  Otherwise, mv
          copies fromfile to tofile, then removes fromfile. This
          requires write permission for the parent directories
          involved.

          If the last argument is a directory, the earlier arguments
          (all files) will be moved into that directory. Any previ-
          ously existing files of the same name will be overwritten.
          Directories can only be renamed: mv refuses to move one into
          another.
