I searched around gnu.org, and searched this list back to the start of 2006, for info on why cp --reply is deprecated (and will be removed in 2008). Sorry if this has been asked before... but what's the replacement for cp -i --reply=no ? I use it, for instance, when I'd started a long-running recursive directory copy that was interrupted in the middle and I want to re-start cp to finish the job. Using --reply=no tells cp not to overwrite existing files; it saves a lot of useless re-copying.
