        sourceDirName:string * 
        destDirName:string -> unit 

Parameters

sourceDirName
Type: System..::..String
The path of the file or directory to move.
destDirName
Type: System..::..String
The path to the new location for sourceDirName. If sourceDirName is a file, then destDirName must also be a file name.

The sourceDirName and destDirName arguments are permitted to specify relative or absolute path information. Relative path information is interpreted as relative to the current working directory. To obtain the current working directory, see GetCurrentDirectory.

Trailing spaces are removed from the end of the path parameters before moving the directory.
