    Re: please help with a stupid question

    To move files and directories, you use the mv command. This stands for "move."

    Code:
    usage: mv [-f | -i | -n] [-v] source target
           mv [-f | -i | -n] [-v] source ... directory
    Feel free to add me on Skype for a quicker response, but tell me you're from the forums!
    Read the following if you want, but I'm warning you: it may be complete nonsense!
