cpio

Synopsis

cpio mode [options]

Copy file archives from or to tape or disk, or to another location on the local machine. Each of the three modes -i, -o, or -p accepts different options.

Mode

-i, --extract [options] [patterns]

Copy in (extract) from an archive files whose names match selected patterns. Each pattern can include Bourne shell filename metacharacters. (Patterns should be quoted or escaped so that they are interpreted by cpio, not by the shell.) If pattern is omitted, all files are copied in. Existing files are not overwritten by older versions from the archive unless -u is specified.
