Description of problem:
Workbook 2. Filesystem Basics
Chapter 4. Managing Directories
IMHO, question 9 "Which of the following commands would copy the
website directory, and all of its subdirectories except
website/media/photos?" is a little too advanced. Refering to the help
or man page on 'cp' will reveal that none of the specified options
will work. The problem is further digging will reveal that the
requested task simply cannot be done with the tools the students have
learned so far. The best solution I see to this problem is to use
'rsync' or a shell script. It doesn't feel right to tease the
students with a task they can't perform yet.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
intent of question was to show
1) some things can't be done with cp
2) command line switches can be examined w/ --help, etc.., and
the two specified (-d, -x) have nothing to do with the quesiton.
"None of the Above" seems a clear answer...
(intent is student's have reference material availabe during
workbook questions. agreed, this would not be fair on a test.)
will track student performance on question, and consider change in
