1. Piping results of a 'find' command to a 'mv' command...
Is there a way to do the following without scripting:
Pipe the contents of a 'find' command to a 'mv' command, so that the
results of 'find', example:
find / -iname '*simpsons*' 2>>/dev/null
/home/shawn/simpsons/Halloween Special IX.mpg
are all moved to a folder of my choosing:
find / -iname '*simpsons*' 2>>/dev/null | mv /home/shawn/tv/simpsons
Can anyone help? If scripting is required, I don't mind, but I
thought that if there was an easy way, I'd like to use it.
If scripting is required, is there an easy way to do it just by
creating a script containing a list of commands and running it after
chmod +x? Or would I have to do something with Perl in order to loop
through the results of the 'find'?
I know a little Perl, but if there is some other type of scripting
preferred for this type of thing, please tell me the name of it and
where I might find a little documentation.
Thank you for any help you can give. And please, even if the answer
can be derived from a particular command, do not simply type 'man
commandName'. A little description/advice would be very nice.
