Question about copying files in Solaris

Hi everyone,

What is the Solaris equivalent of cp -u? I'm copying files from one directory to another, and I'd like to only copy files which are newer.

use "find" to get files that are newer and pipe them to "cp"...

`find` is a great tool for this but in some cases `rsync` might be more effective. Your mileage may vary.

rsync isn't part of solaris... so i recommended find...
