Given two folder A ansd B as shown;
A='/media/my_name/data'
B='/media/my_name/moved_files'
first I read files in path A as shown below
f_raw=dir(fullfile(A,'*.mat'));
now I want to move the 10th file in path A to path B.
I tried it in the ff way but ends up with error,
movefile(A/f_raw(10).name,B)
How can I move this file to path B by using scripts given above ?

ix=10; % don't bury data inside code; use variables
movefile(fullfile(f_raw(ix).folder,f_raw(ix).name),B)
