I primarily use the terminal for file management and day-to-day tasks on my computer. There is one feature that I miss consistently and that is a copy/cut and paste for files (not clipboard text).
More specifically say I'm organizing files and I need to copy several files to different locations on the drive, I would do something like
cp /path/to/first/file /path/to/where/it/goes, when dealing with lots of files with long file-names it is a little bulky. Its annoying especially if you aren't sure where the file is supposed to go (i.e. which specific subfolder)
I was wondering if there is a utility similar to the copy/paste paradigm in most graphic file managers. I.e. you do something like
copy file, navigate to the the directory you want and do
paste file. Rather than explicitly writing out the copy-to path as with
I already have a rudimentary script that I wrote doing this, but I was wondering if there is an "official" or a fully-featured command line utility for this.
