DESCRIPTION

       A user may access data stored under the other mapsets listed in their mapset search  path.
       However,  the  user  may  only  modify  data stored under their own current mapset. g.copy
       allows the user to copy existing data files from  other  mapsets  to  the  user’s  current
       mapset  ($MAPSET).  The  files to be copied must exist in the user’s current mapset search
       path and location; output is sent to the relevant data element  directory(ies)  under  the
       user’s current mapset.

EXAMPLES

       If the user wished to copy the existing raster file soils to a file called soils.ph and to
       copy an existing vector map roads to a file called rds.old, the user could type:
       g.copy raster=soils,soils.ph
       g.copy vector=roads,rds.old
       # or even combined:
       g.copy raster=soils,soils.ph vector=roads,rds.old

       Data files can also be specified by their mapsets.  For example, the below command  copies
       the  raster map named soils from the mapset wilson to a new file called soils to be placed
       under the user’s current mapset:
       g.copy raster=soils@wilson,soils
       If no mapset name is specified, g.copy searches for the named from  map  in  each  of  the
       mapset  directories  listed in the user’s current mapset search path in the order in which
       mapsets are listed there (see g.mapsets).
