I have splitted text files into parts and the parts that belong to a file is ended as part1,part2 ,... partn

I want to copy only part 03 files to another folder.

I would like to do it in windows but if its easier to do it in linux then ok, i have access to a linux virtual machine as well.

Note:- there is a space between part and 03

Take a look at cygwin if you want to able to use the Unix-style command line utilities under Windows. – JOTN Apr 4 '12 at 22:43

@klijo FYI: This is the Windows command. – Darthfett Apr 4 '12 at 17:43
hi there is a space between the 3 and part. How can i handle them ? – klijo Apr 5 '12 at 2:26
Use quotes around the space. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Apr 5 '12 at 2:27

This is the linux equivalent:

cp *part3 /d/some/other/place
