Hi Ozo,

I am sorry for the confusion.

I thought of using this in many places in the code so if its a function , i can call it whenever necessary.
If u advice only command to be called in if needed, then i can use commands only.

Thanks

Assuming you are passing in a filename, then do something like

#!/bin/bash
function mvdelete {
  file=$1
  
  mv FolderB/$file FolderC
  rm -f FolderA/$file
}

mvdelete filename

Open in new window
