       ncopy - NetWare file copy

       ncopy -V

       ncopy [ -vmMnpptu ] [ -s amount ] file destinationfile|directory

       ncopy [ -vmMnpptu ] [ -s amount ] file1 [ file2 ... ] directory

       ncopy -r [ -vmMnpptu ] [ -s amount ] srcdir dstdir

       With ncopy you can copy files to different locations on a single NetWare file server with-
       out generating excess network traffic.  The program uses a NetWare function to do the copy
       rather than transferring the file across the network for both the read and write.

       If  the	last  argument is a directory, ncopy will copy the source file(s) into the direc-
       tory.  If only two files are given and the last argument is not a directory, it will  copy
       the source file to the destination file.

       If the source and destination files are not on the same NetWare server (or are not on Net-
       Ware servers at all), ncopy will do a normal file copy.

	  Show version number and exit

	  Verbose copy.  Will show current file and percentage completion.

	  Copy MAC resource fork. Copies MAC resource fork together with data fork.

	  Copy MAC resource fork to/from non-MAC filesystem. It expects/creates resource forks in
	  subdirectory .rsrc of each directory copied.

	  If  you  want  to  copy  files  from	MAC volume to .rsrc scheme, you must specify both
	  options, -mM. It is not possible to create .rsrc directory on MAC-aware volume  in  one
	  step, you must first copy data to non-MAC media using ncopy -mM and then copy them back
	  using ncopy -M.

	  If you want to copy files from .rsrc scheme on MAC volume to	real  MAC  multiple-forks
	  file,  you must first copy data to non-MAC filesystem using ncopy -M and then copy them
	  back using ncopy -mM.

	  Nice NetWare copy.  Will sleep for a second  between	copying  blocks  on  the  NetWare
	  server.  Gives other people a chance to do some work on the NetWare server when you are
	  copying large files.	This has no effect if you are not copying on a NetWare server.

       -s amount
	  Nice time slice factor.  Used in conjunction with the -n  option,  this  specifies  the
	  number of 100K blocks to copy before sleeping.  Default is 10. (1 Megabyte)

	  Preserve file attributes and date/time during copy.

	  Preserve  file attributes, date/time and owner during copy. Name of owner is preserved,
	  not owner ID.

	  Preserve trustees during copy. Trustee name is preserved, not ID.

	  Perform recursive copy.

	  Perform copy only if mtime or size differs.

       ncopy does not preserve long (MAC, NFS, FTAM, OS2) names during copy.

       ncpmount(8), ncpumount(8)

       ncopy was written by  Brian  G.	Reid  (breid@tim.com)  and  Tom  C.  Henderson	(thender-
       son@tim.com).   Many  thanks  to Volker Lendecke (lendecke@math.uni-goettingen.de) for the
       ncpfs and ncplib which made ncopy possible. Some further work was done by  Petr	Vandrovec
