copying 30000 files
i got the following question:
i have a directory containing 30000 files, all of them ending with .ent.Z
what i want to do now is copy the first 5000 files to a separate directory, then the next
5000 files to another separate directory and so on....
i am not a newbie to linux, but i got no clue how to achieve this, except for writing a perl script.
any ideas how i can do this without using a script?
thanks in advance
