xargs: How To Control and Use Command Line Arguments

Posted on in Categories , , , , , , , , , , last updated September 2, 2010

I am trying to use xargs command using shell pipes and not able to understand how to control and use command line arguments. For example I’d like to find out all *.c file located in 100s of sub-directories and move them to another directory called ~/old.src. How do I use command line args with xargs to achieve the same?
