NAME            cp -- copy

SYNOPSIS        cp file  file
                       1     2

DESCRIPTION     The first file is copied onto the second.  The

                mode and owner of the target file are preserved

                if it already existed; the mode of the source

                file is used otherwise.

                If file  is a directory, then the target file is
                a file in that directory with the file-name of

                file .

                and appropriate diagnostics are produced.

BUGS            Copying a file onto itself destroys its contents.
