Did you ever need to take one file and copy it to a whole bunch of other directories? I had this problem recently when I changed some of the header files on the devdaily.com web site. I had a file named
ddhead.html, and I needed to copy it to a bunch of subdirectories.
Using Unix, Linux, or Cygwin this turns out to be really easy. I just used the Linux
find command, in combination with the
cp command. Once I figured out the right syntax, I was able to copy the file to nearly 500 directories in just a few seconds.
