CP(1)                                                       CP(1)

          cp, fcp - copy files

          cp [ -gux ] fromfile tofile
          cp [ -gux ] fromfile ...  todir
          cp -r [ -gux ] fromdir ...  todir

          fcp [ -R nr ] [ -W nw ] fromfile tofile
          fcp [ -R nr ] [ -W nw ] fromfile ...  todir
          fcp -r [ -R nr ] [ -W nw ] fromdir ...  todir

          In the first form, fromfile is any name and tofile is any
          name except an existing directory.  In the second form, the
          commands copy one or more fromfiles into dir under their
          original file names, as if by a sequence of commands in the
          first form. For example:

               cp f1 f2 dir

          is equivalent to:

               cp f1 dir/f1;  cp f2 dir/f2

          Cp copies the contents of plain (non-directory) file
          fromfile to tofile. The mode and owner of tofile are pre-
          served if it already exists; the permissions of fromfile is
          used otherwise.  The -x option sets the full mode and modi-
          fied time of file2 from file1; -g sets the group id; and -u
          sets the group id and user id (which is usually only possi-
          ble if the file server is in an administrative mode).

          The -r option directs cp to copy recursively the named
          directories fromdir ... to the target directory todir.

          Fcp behaves like cp, but copies many blocks in parallel.  It
          works only with files that respect read and write offsets
          (see pread and pwrite in sys-read(2)), which usually
          excludes files representing devices or services.  When it
          applies, however, it is often much faster than cp. The -R
          and -W options set the number of readers and writers
          (default for each: 8).


          cat(1), mv(1), sys-stat(2)

     CP(1)                                                       CP(1)

          Cp and fcp refuse to copy a file onto itself.
