Thanks, I'll be getting into the other behaviors of cp as they come up in future articles.

Your second point was a good one too. That one slipped by (I did get it right in Mac OS X: The Missing Manual :-) and will be fixed in the article. Just so no one gets worried though, in this particular case, it wouldn't be a problem for anyone who did use the lower case r.
