I have 1 x big folder that has lots of .txt files
I am trying to group these .txt files in separate subfolders based on specific rules from a
rules.csv file (on what subfolder they belong to):
The rules would be:
belong to "subfolder1"
belong to "subfolder2"
Here's the list of rules in a CSV (rules.csv):
first column are the filenames and 2nd column is the subfolder in which I wanna move them to.
file1.txt subfolder1 file3.txt subfolder1 file8.txt subfolder1 file2.txt subfolder2 file4.txt subfolder2 file23.txt subfolder2 file5.txt subfolder3 file6.txt subfolder3 file9.txt subfolder3 file11.txt subfolder3 file16.txt subfolder3 file12.txt subfolder4 file13.txt subfolder4 file14.txt subfolder4 file19.txt subfolder4 file24.txt subfolder4 file28.txt subfolder4 file30.txt subfolder4 file78.txt subfolder5 file37.txt subfolder5 file49.txt subfolder5 file88.txt subfolder5
That's what I am trying to achieve.
Would there be a way to move these .txt files in their respective subfolders based on a terminal command like "mv" + read these rules from the CSV file mentioned above?(not sure if even possible)
I tried something like this
mv file1.txt,file3.txt,file8.txt* /subfolder1
but seems counterproductive to do it manually for each without the rules :(
