Thank you for the prompt and thoughtful answer! I solved my immediate
problem using * as a wildcard; my file naming convention was standardised,
and my file set small, such that this worked. I like your answer of using
grep / egrep and piping it to mv; I will play with that. Your newsgroup
recommendation is the best thing I've heard all week.
Enjoy the rest of your trip and thanks again!
