Need help in backup script

Hello Everyone,

I have written shell script to copy some file from a text file.

while read Eachline
do cp -p $Eachline /usr/x/x/x/temp_part_bkp/
done < /usr/x/x/x/list.txt

but main problem is suppose that there are two files with same name
for eg: in list.txt
/usr/x/x/x/test.atr and /usr/x/x/x1/test.atr
then its overwritten by other one Smilie
I need a script which can copy both file in some location

/usr/x/x/x/test.atr in path /usr/x/x/x/temp_part_bkp/
and /usr/x/x/x1/test.atr in path /usr/x/x/x/temp_part_bkp1/

can we achive it. please help I am stuck Smilie

You could perform a check to see if the file exists
while [ -x /usr/x/x/x/temp_part_bkp/$Eachline ] ; do

A funny eval, ( not tested) :
while read file
   ll $file
   var=$(basename ${file})
   eval let ${var}=${var}+1
   eval t=\$$var
   if [ $t -gt 1 ]
      cp -p $file /usr/x/x/x/temp_part_bkp${t}
     cp -p $file /usr/x/x/x/temp_part_bkp/
