Subject: How do move large number of files ?
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.
