According to documentation , I try : cp -r --force src/file1 ./ but always a confirmation is asked... What's wrong ?'cp -r --reply=yes src/file1 ./' This will work... Check out the man pages for cp or even cp --helpI couldn't find any reference to 'reply' in both `cp --help` and `man cp` here (coreutils-6.9-17.fc8). What version is yours? Moreover: $ cp --reply=yes cp: the --reply option is deprecated; use -i or -f instead cp: missing file operand Try `cp --help' for more information. That last advice is still pertinent, James ;-). Now, what cp does Luc have? Regards,
-bash-2.05b$ rpm -q coreutils coreutils-5.0-34.1I didn't think they would make so many changes to the core utilities. I've been using FC1 for years now and haven't had any problems or issues.
