Firstly can you point me in the right direction for learning scripts in Unix
Secondly: I have some files on a CDROM I need to cut a cd from this. I need a script which will copy the files to for eg /program/bin and rename the files from SDPOP.DOS to sdpop (this is eg only not actual file name)
I want to check for path statements, some machines will have the /u or /usr file system
I also want to back up existing files before being overwritten, and do I need to chmod and chown after the copy?
