cp - copy files and/or directories
% cp [ B<-fipv> ] source_file target_file
% cp [ B<-fipv> ] source... target_dir
The cp utility copies the source files/directories to the target. If the target is a file you may only specify one file as the source. cp will not copy a file onto itself.
-f - force copy if possible (DEFAULT)
-i - prompt for confirmation whenever the copy would overwrite an existing target.
-p - preserve source file attributes (like modDate) as much as possible onto the target.
-v - verbose. Echo "cp source target" before copy is done.
Specifying both -f and -i options is not considered an error. The -f option will override the -i option.
cp has no known bugs, but be aware that the current copy mode is binary mode.
0 - All sources were copied successfully.
1 - There was error
