       e2cp - copies files from/to an e2fs filesystem


       e2cp [options] files... dest


       The e2cp command copies files to/from an e2fs filesystem from/to the machine's filesystem.


       A single `-' (dash) can be used instead of a file name to indicate standard input/output.

       -0     Input lines terminated by a null character.

       -a     Absolute  directory  names  -  create  directories instead of just copying into the
              destination. Only valid for copying into an ext2fs filesystem.

       -d dest_dir
              Destination of files to be copied. May be in the  ext2fs  filesystem  or  the  host

       -G gid Set the default group to gid.

       -O uid Set the default file owner to uid.

       -p     Preserve host file attributes (permissions, times, etc.) when copying files.

       -P mode
              Set the file permissions (ie 755, 666).

       -s src_dir
              The source of the files to be copied.

       -v     Be verbose.
