mv question

Hello
if I like to move file from defined directories system to new directory that not contained any directories system structure .
But I like to create the same file system structure as source directory for example :

I have 2 directories: foo1 and foo2
foo1 have directories and foo2 have not .
this action will fail because foo2 don't have blah/bo/

mv foo1/blah/bo/test.txt foo2/blah/bo/test.txt

so how can I make it work ?

thanks

Do you want to move the entire directory structure from one directory to another? (such as move everything from /foo1 to /foo2). Then you can do this:

Code:
cd /foo1
mv * /foo2/

Similiar posts have been answered in this forum previously.

Look at this and this one as well. Start from there.
