Hello,

I have very huge number of files in one directory that I wish to move to
some other folder and
the standard  "mv" just screames

crash-06:~/DataSet$ mv file*  SFiles
bash: /bin/mv: Argument list too long


Can someone suggest what is may be a good solution.  of course picking one
by one is ruled out.
