GIT-MV(1)                                        Git Manual                                        GIT-MV(1)



NAME
       git-mv - Move or rename a file, a directory, or a symlink

SYNOPSIS
       git mv <options>... <args>...


DESCRIPTION
       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 committed.

OPTIONS
       -f, --force
           Force renaming or moving of a file even if the target exists

       -k
           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.

       -n, --dry-run
           Do nothing; only show what would happen

       -v, --verbose
           Report the names of files as they are moved.
