cp(1) - copy files and directories
Copy SOURCE to DEST, or multiple SOURCE(s) to DIRECTORY.
-a, --archive
       same as -dR --preserve=all
       don't copy the file data, just the attributes
       make a backup of each existing destination file
-b     like --backup but does not accept an argument
       copy contents of special files when recursive
-d     same as --no-dereference --preserve=links
-f, --force
       if  an  existing  destination  file cannot be opened, remove it and try again (redundant if the -n
       option is used)
-i, --interactive
       prompt before overwrite (overrides a previous -n option)
-H     follow command-line symbolic links in SOURCE
-l, --link
       hard link files instead of copying
-L, --dereference
       always follow symbolic links in SOURCE
-n, --no-clobber
       do not overwrite an existing file (overrides a previous -i option)
-P, --no-dereference
       never follow symbolic links in SOURCE
-p     same as --preserve=mode,ownership,timestamps
       preserve the specified attributes (default:  mode,ownership,timestamps),  if  possible  additional
       attributes: context, links, xattr, all
       don't preserve the specified attributes
       use full source file name under DIRECTORY
-R, -r, --recursive
       copy directories recursively
       control clone/CoW copies. See below
       remove each existing destination file before attempting to open it (contrast with --force)
       control creation of sparse files. See below
       remove any trailing slashes from each SOURCE argument
-s, --symbolic-link
       make symbolic links instead of copying
-S, --suffix=SUFFIX
       override the usual backup suffix
-t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY
       copy all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY
-T, --no-target-directory
       treat DEST as a normal file
-u, --update
       copy  only when the SOURCE file is newer than the destination file or when the destination file is
-v, --verbose
       explain what is being done
-x, --one-file-system
       stay on this file system
--help display this help and exit
       output version information and exit
