NAME

jk_cp - a utility to copy files including permissions and libraries into a jail

SYNOPSIS

jk_cp -j jail source
jk_cp -v -k -f -j jail source

DESCRIPTION

jk_cp will copy any file into a jail on the identical location, with identical permissions and (if required) including any required libraries. It will remove any set user id (setuid) or set group id (setgid) permissions from all files and directories copied.

EXAMPLE

jk_cp -j /home/testchroot /usr/bin/cvs
will copy /usr/bin/cvs to /home/testchroot/usr/bin/cvs, and it will copy the libraries used by cvs also to the jail.
jk_cp -k -j /svr/testjail /usr/bin/firefox /usr/share/firefox
will hardlink /usr/bin/firefox and all files in /usr/share/firefox into jail /svr/testjail

OPTIONS

-j --jail The destination jail. If no jail is specified, the first argument is used as jail for backwards compatibility
-f --force Force overwriting of existing files
-k --hardlink
Try to create hardlinks instead of copying the files. If linking fails it falls back to copying.
-o --owner Retains the file ownership and group when copying files and directories.
-v --verbose
Will give verbose output
-h --help The help screen
