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
