mv Command

       mv - move (rename) files
       mv [OPTION]... [-T] SOURCE DEST
       mv [OPTION]... -t DIRECTORY SOURCE...
       Rename SOURCE to DEST, or move SOURCE(s) to DIRECTORY. Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.
       --backup [=CONTROL]                 make a backup of each existing destination file
       -b                                                  like --backup but does not accept an argument
       -f, --force                                                  do not prompt before overwriting

       -i, --interactive                             prompt before overwrite
       -n, --no-clobber                            do not overwrite an existing file
       If you specify more than one of -i, -f, -n, only the final one takes effect.
      --strip-trailing-slashes                   remove any trailing slashes from each SOURCE argument
       -S, --suffix=SUFFIX                        override the usual backup suffix
       -t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY     move all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY
       -T, --no-target-directory               treats DEST as a normal file
       -u, --update                                  move  only  when  the  SOURCE file is newer than the destination        file or when the destination file is missing
       -v, --verbose                                 explain what is being done
       --help                                            display this help and exit
       --version                                                   output version information and exit
The backup suffix is ‘~’, unless set with   --suffix   or   SIMPLE_BACKUP_SUFFIX.   The version control method may be selected via the --backup option or through the VERSION_CONTROL environment variable.
       Here are the values:
       none, off                never make backups (even if --backup is given)
       numbered, t               make numbered backups existing, nil
Numbered if numbered backups exist, simple otherwise simple, never always make simple backups
