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.
