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 [-f] [-n] <source> <destination>
           git mv [-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
