Sorry for late reply.

I think, we can make use of \Needs command in an effective manner.
Please see the following example:

%----------------> Begin <-----------------




\section{Section One}

This is a test for moving all files to another directory.

\Needs{"mkdir -p mytmp"}
\Needs{"mv \jobname.{4ct,4tc,aux,css,dvi,idv,html,lg,log,xref} mytmp"}


%------------------> End <------------------

You might prefer to use the system commands specific to your operating

Best regards
