Program for moving windows

I'm looking for a program that will allow me to move windows to a specified location. This should be a command-line program that accepts a program/window name and the destination coordinates.

Does such a thing exist?

What specifically do you mean by "specified location"? Windows is not a single file but a collection of folders and files -- and you can't just "move" it to another folder on the same partition or on another drive.

I think the OP wants to move a window to a specific DISPLAYED location, not a FOLDER location.
I haven't found a program specifically for this, but AutoHotKey might be able to do this.
The OP would need to play with it to see if it can work as needed...
WinMove
AutoHotkey: macro and automation Windows scripting language

Here is a Google for move window to coordinates:
