copying whole diretory and subs
Edit following a large bit of dyslexia :lol:
BTW This is just me trying to find out what the correct command is - I can workaround the problem :)
I am attempting to copy across the whole of /etc/cups from an eeepc to a pen drive to see if this is a simpel way of cloning printer setup from one to another.
The pendrive path is long and to save typing it in I was trying to use
having first navigated to the pendrive folder, but this ends up creating a folder called cups on the pendrive and not a folder called etc with a cups folder within that as I wanted/expected.
Is there syntax to do what I want?
