For some reason you are being asked to confirm the moving of a file which will
overwrite another file. I suspect one of /etc/profile ~/.profile /etc/bashrc
or ~/.bashrc are responsible for this.
They will probably be doing something to the mv command, to undo this type
alias mv="mv -f"
and mv will no longer ask for confirmation
the 0644 refers to permissions of the file being written, refer to "man chmod"
the correct answer will always be yes and that is what this command will
provide. Should you want this behavior permanently put it into ~/.bashrc
