http://askubuntu.com – Imagine my directory looked like this: ./original.txt ./blah.1.txt ./blah.2.txt [...] ./blah.999999.txt I essentially want to replace every blah.* file with the contents of original. My initial try was to do this: $ cp original.txt blah.* But I get: cp: target ``blah.1.txt' is not a directory (HowTos)
