NAME


mvdir - move a directory

SYNOPSIS


/usr/sbin/mvdir dirname name


DESCRIPTION


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.

OPERANDS


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.


USAGE


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

EXIT STATUS


0
Successful operation.


>0
Operation failed.
