cp * satire/

In addition to using filenames as arguments, we can use special characters like * to select groups of files. These special characters are called wildcards. The * selects all files in the working directory, so here we use cp to copy all files into the satire/ directory.

cp m*.txt scifi/

Here, m*.txt selects all files in the working directory starting with "m" and ending with ".txt", and copies them to scifi/.
