Move all files from source to destination directory based on the filename

Move all files starting with a specific name to different directory.

This shell script program should have three parameters
File Name
Source Directory
Destination Directory

User should be able to enter ĎAB_CD*' in file name parameter. In this case all the files starting with AB_CD will be transferred from source to destination folder.

In source and destination parameter user should enter the exact path i.e. /var/tempo/desc
