Use the one liner below to relocate a file or directory, but keep it accessible on the old location through a symlink.

lmv() { [ -e "$1" -a -d "$2" ] && mv "$1" "$2"/ && ln -s "$2"/"$(basename "$1")" "$(dirname "$1")"; }

This can be used instead of "mv" to move file(s) and then cd into the destination folder.

mvf() {
if  mv "$@"; then
  shift $(($#-1))
  if [ -d $1 ]; then
    cd ${1}
    cd `dirname ${1}`
