hpcopy — copy files from an HFS+ volume
hpcopy [-m | -b | -t | -r | -a ] source-path ... target-path
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.
