Code:
for file_name in *.[tTxXtT]*
do
echo "$file_name"
done

ls is not needed here

well now how i will put the $file_name in my script--
Code:
for file in `ls *.[tTxXtT]*`; do
        mv $file /tmp/$file

please note that in my file i have *.txt.log. i must omit the .txt.log files. Only takes that ended with .txt or .TXT
