How to move or copy files listed by ‘find’ command in unix?

Adding to Eric Jablow’s answer, here is a possible solution (it worked for me – linux mint 14 /nadia)

find /path/to/search/ -type f -name "glob-to-find-files" | xargs cp -t /target/path/

You can refer to “How can I use xargs to copy files that have spaces and quotes in their names?” as well.
