You could play around with something like this:
Code:
filecnt=0

for file in 10_10*
do
  mkdir -f ../test2/${file}
  cp "$file" ../test2/${file}/
  filecnt=$(( $filecnt + 1 ))
done

echo "$filecnt files copied"

# 7  
Code:
mkdir: illegal option -- f
mkdir: usage: mkdir [-m mode] [-p] dirname ...
cp: cannot create ../test2/10_10/: Not a directory
mkdir: illegal option -- f
mkdir: usage: mkdir [-m mode] [-p] dirname ...
cp: cannot create ../test2/10_10_11/: Not a directory
mkdir: illegal option -- f
mkdir: usage: mkdir [-m mode] [-p] dirname ...
cp: cannot create ../test2/10_10_11_12/: Not a directory

i tried it but i have that error??
thank you for your help Smilie Smilie
