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.

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.
