I've a file M on my Mac (OS X ML 10.8.4) and file P on my PC (Win7). File P was originally a copy of file M but is now slightly updated. File M has some extended attributes.
How can I copy file P onto file M, while preserving the extended attributes on file M?
Generally if I copy-paste P onto M through network share, the extended attributes on M are lost.
I'm looking for a an easily implementable / scalable way.
cat P > M is not really an option (not even sure if that works). Could
rsync help here?
