ncopy - NetWare file copy
ncopy [ -vmMnpptu ] [ -s amount ] file destinationfile|directory
ncopy [ -vmMnpptu ] [ -s amount ] file1 [ file2 ... ] directory
ncopy -r [ -vmMnpptu ] [ -s amount ] srcdir dstdir
With ncopy you can copy files to different locations on a single Net-
Ware file server without generating excess network traffic. The pro-
gram uses a NetWare function to do the copy rather than transferring
the file across the network for both the read and write.
If the last argument is a directory, ncopy will copy the source file(s)
into the directory. If only two files are given and the last argument
is not a directory, it will copy the source file to the destination
If the source and destination files are not on the same NetWare server
(or are not on NetWare servers at all), ncopy will do a normal file
Show version number and exit
Verbose copy. Will show current file and percentage completion.
Copy MAC resource fork. Copies MAC resource fork together with data
Copy MAC resource fork to/from non-MAC filesystem. It expects/cre-
ates resource forks in subdirectory .rsrc of each directory copied.
If you want to copy files from MAC volume to .rsrc scheme, you must
specify both options, -mM. It is not possible to create .rsrc direc-
tory on MAC-aware volume in one step, you must first copy data to
non-MAC media using ncopy -mM and then copy them back using ncopy
If you want to copy files from .rsrc scheme on MAC volume to real
MAC multiple-forks file, you must first copy data to non-MAC
filesystem using ncopy -M and then copy them back using ncopy -mM.
Nice NetWare copy. Will sleep for a second between copying blocks
on the NetWare server. Gives other people a chance to do some work
on the NetWare server when you are copying large files. This has no
effect if you are not copying on a NetWare server.
Nice time slice factor. Used in conjunction with the -n option,
this specifies the number of 100K blocks to copy before sleeping.
Default is 10. (1 Megabyte)
Preserve file attributes and date/time during copy.
Preserve file attributes, date/time and owner during copy. Name of
owner is preserved, not owner ID.
Preserve trustees during copy. Trustee name is preserved, not ID.
Perform recursive copy.
Perform copy only if mtime or size differs.
ncopy does not preserve long (MAC, NFS, FTAM, OS2) names during copy.
