Cp command, copying files doesnt work!


Manipulation cp I. You have to copy cleopatra.txt from the biopic directory. But when im in the the drama directory as I should be and type in "cp biopic/cleopatra.txt historical/" and visit the historical directory afterwards there is no copy !?


Got a screenshot showing that?
If cp failed then it'll give you some form of feedback.
How does one reproduce what you describe?
If you've aliased cp to something else, or otherwise have hidden it, then that could explain misbehaviour. The following command should be saying that cp is a built-in bash command:
$ type cp


No feedback, there just isnt a copy. But the Instruction Box on the left side becomes checked when I do it.
