cp --reply=yes deprecated!!

cp --reply=yes deprecated!!

so some wiseass deprecated it, it would be okay if only --force
would also work, but apparently not, because i still get a prompt.

i know in shell script i can do

cp --force file tofile <<%%

but i would prefer to use cp in perl


system("cp --force ".$fromfile." ".$tofile);

so maybe this is a perl question, as i don't know how to do the
with that perl.

or i would prefer another unix copy command that works,
