We would like to add the following files/folders to your Desktop directory.
blah/ dexter/ creepy.txt person.txt
Enter the Unix commands that can make these files and folders:
Desktop $ mkdir -p blah/dexter Desktop $ touch blah/person.txt Desktop $ touch blah/dexter/creepy.txt
To copy the contents of the blah/ directory into a directory called copy/, run the following command:
$ mkdir copy/ && cp -r blah/* copy/
This will make the copy/ directory and recursively iterate over the contents of the blah/ directory to add them in the copy/ directory.
