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
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.
