I'd like to move all sub-folders starting with a given suffix (Blah_ in the example) into an other directory using a linux bash script. Here's what the script looks like:
srcDir="/home/me/" archiveDir="/Archive/" prefix="Blah_" mv -v -f "$srcDir$prefix*" -t $archiveDir
Though there are a lot of directories starting with 'Blah_', inside /home/me, this leads to the following error message:
mv: cannot stat `/home/me/Blah_*': No such file or directory
Now I'm curious whats wrong here. How must the above script be changed in order to move all subfolders starting with 'Blah' into the archive folder?
