It all depends on where the files are and where you want to put them.
If I wanted to copy all the .java files from /home/timh/project5/src/main/java to /export/backup/timh/projects/project5 I could use the find command, the rsync command, the cp command and several others, and depending on options, dump all the files into the destination directory or replicate the source directory structure as well.
In a simple case, if you specify multiple source files on the cp command and a single destination directory, all those files would be copied into that directory:
Or use a "glob" wildcard
I can copy a directory and its attributes to a new directory:
Only if you're trying to copy from/to wildly-located places would a script be essential, and even then, sometimes you can just feed a file containing a list of filename paths to a copy utility.
"privilege" comes from the Latin words for "private" and "law" (legal) and dates to feudal times. To "claim privilege" meant that you were above the laws that applied to the common people.
