Hello, I am trying to interpret one command and I am not able to get the get what does % symbolizes here..
find /path/to/diretory -type f -print0 | xargs -0 -i% cp -v % /path/to/new/directory
Please let me know how cp is taking % as the argument supplied via find using pipe. I know it works but how it works I am failed to get it. Does bash shell playing any role here or it is magic of xargs command? Thanks!
