How to copy hidden files and hidden subdirectories (the ones starting with a dot) in folder A to folder B? For example if I have this structure:
A/a A/b A/.a A/.b/ A/.b/somefile A/.b/.c
I would like to copy to B just the hidden files and hidden subdirectories in A:
B/.a B/.b/ B/.b/somefile B/.b/.c
I have already tried this command:
cp A/.* B from this other superuser question. However, it does not copy the subdirectories. Also tried
cp -r A/.* B, but it copies
. so I end with an exact copy of A (including the normal files). Any help is appreciated.
