WTF?!?!?

Windows command line weirdness

I just spent the day trying to figure out who dickherfy is.

Google did not help. Nothing I did helped.

Those of you who do any windows scripting may know what I'm talking about.



There is a command called 'xcopy'

To guarentee that you get a completely clean copy you need a few command line arguements.
Specifically /d /i /c /k /h /e /r /f /y ... which would normally be written as /dickherfy

granted xcopy foo /dickerfy makes you wonder who the hell he is.

No one mentions XCOPY these days...
lol.

And even though I saw those switches before, I never say it specified as quite like that! Amusing - indeed!!!
