Within a year of introduction to Linux, I have a directory of all files and sub directories, I would copy the files and only files in another location. I see that the cp command to make this, work well however, the manual does not indicate an option to choose the type of argument (file or directory). What command should I use so that the number of files to move are very large. Can i use the cp command selectively. I thank you in advance. Any advice or suggestion will be appreciated.
