Is there any command to check the each and every file copied recursively or not?


good moring!
pls give the suggetions for me.

I am copying the files recursively from one dir to another dir.

Here I am trying as below:
But here we get the each file recursively using find command.
If this file copied in installation path ,i am getting two files as

ex :
fname1=aaa/bbb/a.txt
installPath=/home/all/
then I am getting /home/all/aaa/bbb/a.txt , /home/all/a.txt

for fname in $folders
do
if [ -d "./$fname" ]
then
files=`find "$fname"`
for fname1 in $files
do
cp -r --preserve=mode $fname1 "${installPath}"/.
if [ $? -eq 0 ]
then
echo "Copied the file: "${installPath}""${fname1}"" >> "${installPath}"/SRMsetuplog.log
else
echo "Could not copy the file:"${installPath}""${fname1}"" >> "${installPath}"/SRMsetuplog.log
fi
done
fi
done


Is there any command to check the each and every file copied or not?

Pls give the suggetions for me

Thanq,
Nagendra

Use rsync rather than copy ... "man rsync" for complete information.

This line

if [ -d "./$fname" ]

does not make sense.

./$fname means run this prog in the current dir

-d means is this a dir

Try

if [[ -d $fname ]]

Also,
installPath=/home/all/

ends with a slash, so

"${installPath}"/.

should be

"${installPath}"

and in fact drop the double quotes unless you have spaces in the filenames/dirnames (don't do that though...)




also, please provide the whole prog in code tags so the indentation shows up as well.
