How do I recursively copy a file into many subdirectories?



Hello all,

I am trying to copy a file called ".something" from a
/dir1/dir2 directory into /dir1/dir2/dir3/dir4/dir5/dir6/dir7...etc.
That is, each sub-directory must have a copy of this file. I have tried:

cp -r .something /dir1/*

But that didn't do it. Thoughts?
