       bk mv - rename file[s]

       bk mv [-f] <source-file-or-dir> [<file> ...]  <dest-file-or-dir>

       To rename a file/directory from <A> to <B> do this:

           $ bk mv A B

       The  bk mv command will rename the checked out file (if any) as well as
       the revision control file.  Edited files are also renamed and then  re-
       edited, preserving any changes made but not yet checked in.  The rename
       will appear as an additional change to the file  when  you  commit  the
       next changeset.

       Renames propagate just like content changes, i.e., they happen automat-
       ically when you pull changes into your repository from another  reposi-
       tory unless you have also renamed the file.  In that case, the resolver
       will prompt you to choose a name.

       If the last argument is an existing directory, bk mv moves  all  listed
       files  into that directory.  Otherwise, if only two files are given, it
       renames the first as the second.  It is an error if more than two files
       are  listed  and  the  last argument is not a directory.  The intent is
       that bk mv behaves like the traditional UNIX mv command, except that it
       knows  about  the  additional  BitKeeper  files  and records the rename

       bk mv will refuse to move BitKeeper metafiles  without  the  -f  option
       (use of which is not recommended).

       If both the <A> and <B> arguments are directories, bk mv will check the
       repository consistency.  If this check fails the  move  operation  will
       not continue.
