In my /home/user/.bashrc file, I have those aliases to prevent mistakes:
alias rm='rm -i' alias cp='cp -i' alias mv='mv -i'
If I'm really sure of what I'm doing, I can overwrite rm and mv aliases using rm -f or mv -f, it will not ask me if I really want to overwrite files.
The problem, is that it doesn't work for the cp command, using cp -f will still ask me a question.
Is this normal? What should I do in order to have cp -i alias by default and be able to use cp -f command too?
I'm using Debian Wheezy 64bit.
