Documentation for method move
Documentation for method move, assembled from the following types:
method move(IO::Path: IO() , : --> Bool)sub move(IO() , IO() , : --> Bool)
Copies a file and then removes the original. If removal fails, it's possible to end up with two copies of the file. Returns
True on success; fails with X::IO::Move if
True and the
$to path already exists or if the operation failed for some other reason, such as when
$from are the same file.
To avoid copying, you can use
rename, if the files are on the same storage device. It also works with directories, while
move does not.
