    5.43: How do I copy an entire directory?

    (contributed by Shlomi Fish)

    To do the equivalent of "cp -R" (i.e. copy an entire directory tree
    recursively) in portable Perl, you'll either need to write something
    yourself or find a good CPAN module such as File::Copy::Recursive.

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
