Hi, I have a quick question about the cp command and recursively copying a directory. If I type:
$ cp -R /foo/file/ ~/ I get in my home directory a file called "file". If I type: $ cp -R /foo/file ~/ I get in my home directory a directory called "foo" and a file called "file". Can someone explain why the trailing slash cp to behave differently? My user shell is pdksh and the root shell is csh. I have pdksh set to use "complete-list" and csh to use "autolist". Is this behavior just something unique to FreeBSD? I tried the same on my OpenBSD box and the two commands worked the same and created a directory with a file in it. I also don't remember these working differently on linux. Do I possibly have something setup wrong with my shells? Thanks. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
