Copying files that match a pattern into a directory.28 May 2021
As an answer to this question: “How do I copy files matching a pattern, all to a directory?”, the answer is:
cp box*.JPG images
in linux, where
box*.JPG are the files (with
* the wildcard) and
images as the directory.
I haven’t learned some of the command line tools extensively, some I use a lot, some not. I have been having some trouble with Nautilus (too many files?) so I expect to use these kinds of tools a lot more.
