This script is used to move or rename a file, directory or symlink.
- git mv [-f] [-n] [-k] <source> <destination>
- git mv [-f] [-n] [-k] <source> ... <destination directory>
+ 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>.
