move

(1) In programming, to copy data from one place in memory to another. Move is really a copy, because at the end of the move, source and destination data are identical. MOV is an assembly language instruction.

(2) In word processing and graphics, to relocate text and images to another part of the document or drawing.

(3) An external DOS/Windows command that moves a file to a new location (it copies first, then deletes the source file). Widely used by Windows programmers and power users, the syntax is like the Copy command. The following example moves the MYBUDGET spreadsheet into the \NEXTYEAR folder. See copy.
  C:\BUDGETS>move mybudget.xls \nextyear
