Question [APPENDED]Real moving of a folder's content to another folder.


Hello!
Is there a Commend to move the content of a folder -only image files no subfolders- to another destination folder?

Actully, I had a look on the following post:
Post tilte:Using mv to move the content of one directory into another
From it, I tried that:
Code:
# rsync -a SOURCE/ DEST/
But, it copy a folder as all to the distination.
Code:
mv -i SOURCE/ DEST/
But, that moves the Folder as a folder to the distination.

What is the correct commend doing what I need?

Depends what you mean by image. A photographic one or something like a .iso. Lets assume...

Code:
mv /home/directory/*.iso /home/new directory/*
I think

If all the contents of your disk disappear to /dev/null...

"It wiznae me, a big boy did it and ran away!" (Scottish excuse)

Play Bonny!

You can do it using the absolute paths

Code:
mv /path/to/folder/*.jpg /source/to/destination

try this:

Code:
touch /path/to/destination/*.jpg
mv -u /path/to/source/*.jpg /path/to/destination/
It should first update access and modification times of files in destination folder. Then moves the content of the source folder to the destination if they are newer than the files in the destination folder and in this case it shouldn't happen.
