SHTOOL-MOVE.TMP(1)		     GNU Portable Shell Tool		       SHTOOL-MOVE.TMP(1)

       shtool-move - GNU shtool enhanced mv(1) replacement

       shtool move [-v|--verbose] [-t|--trace] [-e|--expand] [-p|--preserve] src-file dst-file

       This is a mv(1) style command enhanced with the ability to rename multiple files in a
       single operation and the ability to detect and not touch existing equal destinations
       files, thus preserving timestamps.

       The following command line options are available.

       -v, --verbose
	   Display some processing information.

       -t, --trace
	   Enable the output of the essential shell commands which are executed.

       -e, --expand
	   Expand asterisk in src to be used as ""%"n" (where n is 1,2,...) in dst-file. This is
	   useful for renaming multiple files at once.

       -p, --preserve
	   Detect src-file and dst-file having equal content and not touch existing destination
	   files, thus perserving timestamps. This is useful for applications that monitor
	   timestamps, i.e. suppress make(1L) repeating actions for unchanged files.

	#   shell script
	shtool move -v -e '*.txt' %1.asc

	#   Makefile
	scanner.c: scanner.l
	    lex scanner.l
	    shtool move -t -p lex.yy.c scanner.c

       The GNU shtool move command was originally written by Ralf S.  Engelschall
       <rse@engelschall.com> in 1999 for GNU shtool.

       shtool(1), mv(1), make(1).
