The Unix Tool I Now Long For


I understand after having considered it that the Unix Tool Tip Of The Day was about copying files that don’t exist at the destination directory. But now I’d like something which copies files that don’t exist at the source. There’s something ineffably beautiful about the handling of data which you don’t have and which doesn’t even exist. I suppose debugging a problem with it would be all but impossible, though. “Where’s the error log?” “Copy moved it to the original directory.”
