copy directory names to new user
OK, looking in cp command I don't see an option for what I'm trying to do.
Am teaching a new user how to use xsane and to file each scan into the proper folder(directory). Hope this makes sense.
There are 40-50 folders in user1 desktop and I want to copy them onto user2 desktop but I DON'T want the contents....just the named folder. This way I can set up some dummy folders they can practice filing the scanned docs into, without screwing up data in my real (user1) folders.
I could just create and name a bunch of folders identical to the ones I'm trying to copy but it would be time consuming. After they learn I'm going to let them work on the real folders (user1) and delete all the copied dummy folders on user2 desktop.
Any help appreciated
