in thread Unix rename behaviour

Ok, I stand corrected. I have no access to a box to test with, so I was guessing.

I suppose that the rename is just changing the directory entry. I believe that a /bin/cp will give the exact semantics that I supposed earlier? Maybe someone will check for me.

Or maybe I'll just get downvoted.
