Pulling directories


Hi all,

PHP Code:
[root@AUSDEV Desktop]# pwd
/root/Desktop

[root@AUSDEV Desktop]# ls -l
total 8
drwxr
-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jul 16 23:32 dir1
drwxr
-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jul 16 23:37 DIR1 
PHP Code:
[root@AUSDEV Desktop]# tree dir1
dir1
|-- dir2
|   `-- dir3
|       
`-- dir4
|           `-- dir5
`-- f1

4 directories
1 file 
PHP Code:
 [root@AUSDEV Desktop]# tree DIR1
DIR1
`-- DIR2

1 directory, 0 files 
# cp -rf /dir* .

PHP Code:
[root@AUSDEV DIR2]# ls -l
total 4
drwxr
-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jul 17 01:22 dir1

[root@AUSDEV DIR2]# cd dir1/
[root@AUSDEV dir1]# ls -l
total 4
drwxr
-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Jul 17 01:22 dir2

[root@AUSDEV dir1]# cd dir2/
[root@AUSDEV dir2]# ls -l
total 8
drwxr
-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jul 17 01:22 dir1
drwxr
-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jul 17 01:22 dir3 
My question is
Why directory dir1 is created under directory dir2 ?

Thanks in advance.

you copied /dir* into the local dir. I have no idea what is /dir*, but probably that is the reason.
What will: tree /dir* say?
