git-mv - Move or rename a file, a directory, or a symlink
'git mv' <options>... <args>...
This script is used to move or rename a file, directory or symlink.
git mv [-v] [-f] [-n] [-k] <source> <destination>
git mv [-v] [-f] [-n] [-k] <source> ... <destination directory>
In the first form, it renames <source>, which must exist and be either
a file, symlink or directory, to <destination>.
In the second form, the last argument has to be an existing
directory; the given sources will be moved into this directory.
The index is updated after successful completion, but the change must still be
Force renaming or moving of a file even if the target exists
Skip move or rename actions which would lead to an error
condition. An error happens when a source is neither existing nor
controlled by GIT, or when it would overwrite an existing
file unless '-f' is given.
Do nothing; only show what would happen
Report the names of files as they are moved.
