Description David Tonhofer 2007-12-22 14:35:22 EST
A slight clarification for the scp man page ("openssh-3.9p1/scp.1"). The "scp.0"
page in the distribution must be generated from scp.1

0) The man page generator on Red Hat does not like the '.Aq' tag which
   appears in front of the Author mail addresses? Removed.

1) Added the text: 

     When copying a source file to a target file which already exists, scp
     will replace the contents of the target file (keeping the inode).

     If the target file does not yet exist, an empty file with the target
     file name is created, then filled with the source file contents.  No
     attempt is made at "near-atomic" transfer using temporary files.
