e2cp(1) copies files from/to an e2fs filesystem


e2cp [options] files... dest


The e2cp command copies files to/from an e2fs filesystem from/to the machine's filesystem.


A single `-' (dash) can be used instead of a file name to indicate standard input/output.
Input lines terminated by a null character.
Absolute directory names - create directories instead of just copying into the destination. Only valid for copying into an ext2fs filesystem.
-d dest_dir
Destination of files to be copied. May be in the ext2fs filesystem or the host filesystem.
-G gid
Set the default group to gid.
-O uid
Set the default file owner to uid.
Preserve host file attributes (permissions, times, etc.) when copying files.
-P mode
Set the file permissions (ie 755, 666).
-s src_dir
The source of the files to be copied.
Be verbose.
