Copy the script into my account


I have a script(named swt) that is present in another users account. We are both present on the same server. I can run the script by creating an alias for it in my account.

However, I need to create a copy of that script in my account so that I can modify and play around with it. Is there anyway I can do that?

If you have read-access to the file:

cp /path/to/original /path/to/new
