NAME ^

cp - copy files and/or directories

SYNOPSIS ^

cp [ -fiv ] source_file target_file

cp [ -fiv ] source... target_dir

DESCRIPTION ^

The cp utility copies the source files/directories to the target. If the target is a file you may only specify one file as the source. cp will not copy a file onto itself.

OPTIONS

-f Force copy if possible (DEFAULT)

-i Prompt for confirmation whenever the copy would overwrite an existing target.

-p Preserve source file attributes (like modDate) as much as possible onto the target.

-v Verbose. Echo "cp source target" before copy is done.

Specifying both -f and -i options is not considered an error. The -f option will override the -i option.

BUGS ^

cp has no known bugs, but be aware that the current copy mode is binary mode.

EXIT STATUS ^

0 = All sources were copied successfully.
