NAME

       hpcopy — copy files from an HFS+ volume

SYNOPSIS

       hpcopy [-m  | -b  | -t  | -r  | -a ] source-path ... target-path

Description

       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.
