NAME

mvr - like mv, but clever

VERSION

version 0.005

SYNOPSIS

    mv source.txt dest.txt
    mv source{1,2,3}.txt dest # don't care if source1.txt already exists
    mv DSC*.jpg ~/Pictures    # don't care if DSC0001.jpg already exists

DESCRIPTION

Renames source files like mv, but gives them a unique name if the name you tried to use was already taken.

OPTIONS

--deduplicate, --no-deduplicate

Whether to enable deduplication. If enabled (the default), then upon encountering a name conflict, the script will check whether the source and destination files have the same contents. If they do, the source file will simply be removed, rather than adding another copy of the file to the destination. Use --no-deduplicate to disable this behaviour.

--verbose, --quiet

Provides output describing operations. Use --quiet to silence all non-error output.

--help, -?

--version

NAMING

mvr is like mv, but also does automatic renaming for uniqueness, so mvr actually means "move-rename" but has the added coincidental feature of being the word "mover" with the vowels removed for Maximum Trendiness.
