This one only fits your description if you allow for semicolons.
one three two
$ mkdir /tmp/flarf ; cp * /tmp/flarf ; mv -f -b -S .png
/tmp/flarf/* . ; rm -f *[^.png] ; rmdir /tmp/flarf ; rm -f png
one.png three.png two.png
that last 'rm -f png' is just incase you had a file named png, and you
wanted it moved to png.png. Without it, you'll be left with:
one.png png png.png three.png two.png
since *[^\.png] matches the file 'png' (despite the \.), so it won't get
If you use bash or sh, you could use
for file in *; do mv $file $file.png; done
