mv - Move (rename) Files
The mv command is similar to the ren (rename) command in Windows or DOS. This command will change the name of a file and is of the form:
mv [option] source destination
The source can be either an absolute (complete) file name or a relative (partial) file name. Conceptually if the source and destination are within a current working directory this command merely renames the file. If source and destination are different directories, the file is moved (renamed) to the new location. Again notice that the -i option is very useful, if the destination file name exists before the move command is executed, move will destroy what ever was in the pre-existing destination file. When using -i option, the prompt will only occur if the destination file exists and asks for confirmation.
