MOVE and Prompt on overwrite


Scott Mintz
I have COPY Prompt on Overwrite set true. I can use COPY /Y to force an overwrite. However, there doesn't appear to be an equivalent switch for the MOVE command. I don't see a switch to suppress the prompt with MOVE.
But I have enabled the configuration option "Copy Prompt on Overwrite" ("CopyPrompt=Yes" in TCMD.INI) (and I have to let it activated) which seems valid for move too. There should be also a possibility (switch) to suppress the prompt for the move command IMHO.

That COPY option is solely for CMD compatibility. MOVE does not have an equivalent, because it will only prompt you if you specify the /P option.
Not true.
alias RTRUNCATE=`HEAD /N+1 /N 999999 %1 > %1.tmp & MOVE %1.tmp %1`

$ rtruncate "km parms.txt"
S:\LNX\Platform\Common\Utilities\DWC_tRoot_Firmware\km parms.txt.tmp ->! S:\LNX\Platform\Common\Utilities\DWC_tRoot_Firmware\km parms.txt (Replace) (Y/N/A/R)? Y
