Summary: Move/copy/append/link multiple files
Description:
This is mmv, a program to move/copy/append/link multiple files
according to a set of wildcard patterns. This multiple action is
performed safely, i.e. without any unexpected deletion of files due to
collisions of target names with existing filenames or with other
target names. Furthermore, before doing anything, mmv attempts to
detect any errors that would result from the entire set of actions
specified and gives the user the choice of either aborting before
beginning, or proceeding by avoiding the offending parts.

Thanks ahead.

Is it actually actually installed? If you do "rpm -q mmv" does it show the version that is installed? If so, you should be able to use it with the "mmv" command; and do "man mmv" to see the manpage. If not, do "yum install mmv" to install it.
