I can't figure out how to do this: copy (or move) all the hidden files and directories contained in one directory to another directory.
Is it as embarrasingly simple as I imagine it must be?
Go to the source directory, then
find . -print | cpio -pmud <dest>
If you want it verbose, use
find . -print | cpio -pmudv <dest>
These preserve permissions and such during the copy...
