NAME [Toc] [Back]
doscp - copy to or from DOS files
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
doscp [-fmvu] file1 file2
doscp [-fmvu] file1 [file2 ...] directory
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The doscp command is targeted for removal from HP-UX; see the WARNINGS
doscp is the DOS counterpart of cp (see cp(1)). doscp copies a DOS
file to a DOS or HP-UX file, an HP-UX file to an HP-UX or DOS file, or
HP-UX or DOS files to an HP-UX or DOS directory. The last name in the
argument list is the destination file or directory.
A DOS file name is recognized by the presence of an embedded colon (:)
delimiter; see dosif(4) for DOS file naming conventions.
Metacharacters *, ?, and [ ... ] can be used when specifying both HPUX
and DOS file names. These must be quoted when specifying a DOS
file name, because file name expansion must be performed by the DOS
utilities, not by the shell. DOS utilities expand file names as
described in regexp(5) under PATTERN MATCHING NOTATION.
The file name - (dash) is interpreted to mean standard input or
standard output depending upon its position in the argument list.
Options [Toc] [Back]
doscp recognizes the following options:
-f Unconditionally write over an existing file. In the
absence of this option, doscp asks permission to overwrite
an existing HP-UX file.
-v Verbose mode. doscp prints the source name.
-u Disable argument case conversion. In the absence of this
option, all DOS file names are converted to upper case.
-m In this case you may have a filename same as DOS volume
RETURN VALUE [Toc] [Back]
doscp returns 0 if all files are copied successfully. Otherwise, it
prints a message to standard error and returns with a non-zero value.
EXAMPLES [Toc] [Back]
Copy the files in the HP-UX directory abc to the DOS volume stored as
HP-UX file hard_disk:
Hewlett-Packard Company - 1 - HP-UX 11i Version 2: August 2003
TO BE OBSOLETED
doscp abc/* hard_disk:
Copy DOS file /backup/log through the HP-UX special file /dev/rfd9127
to HP-UX file logcopy located in the current directory:
doscp /dev/rfd9127:/backup/log logcopy
Copy DOS file zulu on the volume stored as HP-UX file bb to standard
doscp bb:zulu -
Copy all files in directory /dameron with extension txt in the DOS
volume /dev/rdsk/c1t2d0 to the HP-UX directory abacus located in the
doscp '/dev/rdsk/c1t2d0:/dameron/*.txt' abacus
WARNINGS [Toc] [Back]
Use of doscp is discouraged because it is targeted for removal from
HP-UX. Use dos2ux(1) instead.
doscp works more reliably if you use a raw device special file
(/dev/rdsk/) than a block device special file.
To use SCSI floppy disk devices, the sflop device driver must be
configured into the kernel. (You can use the ioscan command to verify
