Bash commands

What is the "bash" command to copy a file I figure it will be something like "??? /home/user/file.conf /home/user/file/filenew.conf" for an example.

The greater question is where is the man(ual) for this? Where can I find the mans for most of my packages, etc on my computer? I'm using Slackware 9.1.

This was literally asked like a few hours ago, you need to use the cp command. Now go search and or read the man pages..
