mvdir - move a directory

/usr/sbin/mvdir dirname name

mvdir moves directories within a file system. dirname must be a directory. If name does not exist, it will be created as a directory. If name does exist, and is a directory, dirname will be created as name/dirname. dirname and name may not be on the same path; that is, one may not be subordinate to the other. For example:

example% mvdir x/y x/z

is legal, but

example% mvdir x/y x/y/z

is not.

dirname
The name of the directory that is to be moved to another directory in the filesystem.

name

The name of the directory into which dirname is to be moved. If name does not exist, it will be created. It may not be on the same path as dirname.

See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of mvdir when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes).
