Source file :
Destination directory :
the command should be something like :
<command> <option> ~/SCRIPTS/script ~/TMP/LAB
Desired result after the command :
There's no point in doing
<command> <option> ~/SCRIPTS/script ~/TMP/LAB/SCRIPTS/
Because I'll have to edit the command each time I change the source file. Basically I want the command to create the dirs based on the structure it finds in the source, not based on the target I desire to create.
The command should :
- create ~/TMP/LAB/SCRIPTS/
- copy ~/SCRIPTS/script to it.
cp --parents does that, but only when copying directories
I don't know if
install can do that for me? or maybe
cp -r ~/SCRIPTS ~/TMP/LAB?
cp --parents, it works when copying files as well.
