hpcopy — copy files from an HFS+ volume
hpcopy [-m | -b | -t | -r | -a ] source-path ... target-path
hpcopy copies files and directories from an HFS+ volume. If multiple files are to be copied, the target path must be a directory. Since Macintosh files contain two forks, which are not representably in Unix file systems, copies use one of several translation modes: -m Mac Binary II is a format for binary file transfer. Both forks of the Macintosh file are preserved. This is the recommended mode for transferring arbitrary Macintosh files. -b BinHex also preserves both forks of the Macintosh file. In addition, the encoded file contains only ASCII characters, making it suitable for electronic mail transmission. -t Text copies only the data fork of the Macintosh file, while the contents of the resource fork are lost. In addition, this mode translates end-of-line characters. This translation should be used for text files. -r Raw Data copies only the data fork of the Macintosh file, while the contents of the resource fork are lost. -a Automatic mode applies a set of predefined heuristics to determine the appropriate translation. This is the default if no mode is specified.
