Subject: Re: How to edit filenames in rc scripts without sed
Date: Mon, 16 Aug 1993 12:30:19 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <19930816163019.T2BegHK1D-h1xr1WdahTwauJ2rONUDhCokkN8rs2vDc@z> (raw)

For the (vaguely frequent) mv and cp commands, i use specialised commands
that allow wildcards, called 'move' and 'copy':

; mv '*.c' '*.c.old'

for anything else, i'm into the once-per-month-if-that kind of command, and
using sed's quicker than thinking about it:-).
