in reply to Preserving Ownership with File::Copy::Recursive

I have vague recollections of a similar problem a few years ago under hp/ux and the solution that was settled upon was to tar the subdir to be copied and untar it in the destination. This has the required side effect of preserving the attributes.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
