CP(1)                       General Commands Manual                      CP(1)



NAME
       cp - copy

SYNOPSIS
       cp file1 file2

       cp file ... directory

DESCRIPTION
       File1  is copied onto file2.  The mode and owner of file2 are preserved
       if it already existed; the mode of the source file is used otherwise.

       In the second form, one or more files are  copied  into  the  directory
       with their original file-names.

       Cp refuses to copy a file onto itself.
