Shell/Renaming a File

From Coder Merlin

Renaming a File[edit]

We can rename a file with the mv (move) command. Let's try it:

john-williams@codermerlin:~$  echo "Hello" > hello.txt
john-williams@codermerlin:~$  ls
john-williams@codermerlin:~$  mv hello.txt goodbye.txt
john-williams@codermerlin:~$  ls
