move file command in sftp

Is there a move command when using sftp?  i can sftp to the server, but only a rename command is available as far as i can tell.  i'm downloading a file and once i down load it, i would like to move the file onto a different directory (Processed) so that i don't have to see it every time i log back in.  I don't want to delet it since i may need to download it again incase my local one is lost.

Hey nohurt.

From the following link...

sftp> help move

USAGE: move remote-source-path remote-destination-path [-d]
DESCRIPTION: Move the specified remote file.
PARAMETERS:
 -d    When using wildcards, move matching directories as well.
SYNONYM: mv, rename, ren

Hope this helps!

that link didn't work for me.
but, your comment on "help move" got me past it. it looks like the sftp server i connect to does not have the option for move.  just ls, put, get, and a few others.  but no move or copy is available.  i'll have to ask the people hosting it.
