Lesson 2 Step 6

I have no idea why it’s not working…

cd comedy ls
satire shrek.txt slapstick the-office.txt
cp * satire/ cp: omitting directory ‘satire’ cp: omitting directory ‘shrek.txt’ cp: omitting directory ‘slapstick’ cd satire
$ ls
fight-club.txt the-office.txt

It’s only copying the-office.txt into the satire directory… and omitting all the other things it’s supposed to copy into the directory. Anyone know what’s going on with this?

Directories are skipped unless you add -r (recursive)
