It will find any file from your current directory downwards that end in .otl- , eg:

file.otl-

and then renames that file to attrib.otl

Hopefully attrib.otl is a subdirectory, in which case it will move those files into that subdirectory.  Otherwise it would rename everything to one filename and it'd delete all but the last one it finds.
