mv -f directoryOne/*.* directoryTwo
is NOT the same thing as
mv -fr directoryOne/ directoryTwo
One of puts some critical data files into the directory I’m about to zip for deployment. The other puts some critical data files into the directory I’m about to zip for deployment… and clobbers the identically named data files already there. Can you spot the difference? This addled Windows programmer did about two seconds too late.
Despite the three hour minor setback I believe I’m going to make my launch target. Yay for building some slack into the schedule.
