What is the easiest way to copy a directory tree as hard links? Linux has a nice little 'cp -al' flag combo to do this. The FreeBSD cp(1) manual page says to use pax or tar, but how do I get the ability to rename the file without first creating a destination file? I don't want an archive, just regular directory tree sitting right next to the original, but with a new name ... consisting of of hard links back to the original. For example on linux I could do something like:
$ ls foo/ $ cp -al foo bar The result would be a new copy of foo, which takes up no additional space, as all files share the same inodes. Is there an easy way to do this on FreeBSD?
