Plan 9 - man page for cp (plan9 section 1)
|Linux & Unix Commands - Search Man Pages
cp, mv - copy, move files
cp file1 file2
cp file ... directory
mv file1 file2
mv file ... directory
In the first form file1 is any name and file2 is any name except an existing directory.
In the second form the commands copy or move one or more files into a directory under
their original file names, as if by a sequence of commands in the first form. Thus is
Cp copies the contents of plain file1 to file2. The mode and owner of file2 are preserved
if it already exists; the mode of file1 is used otherwise.
Mv moves file1 to file2. If the files are in the same directory, file1 is just renamed;
otherwise mv behaves like cp followed by rm. Mv will rename directories, but it refuses
to move a directory into another directory.
Cp and mv refuse to copy or move files onto themselves.
