With ncopy you can copy files to different locations on a single
NetWare file server without generating excess network traffic. The
program 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
Copy MAC resource fork to/from non-MAC filesystem. It expects/creates
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 directory 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 -M.
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
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
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.
ncopy does not recurse into directories and does not preserve long
(MAC, NFS, FTAM, OS2) names during copy.
