SYNOPSIS

dupe original

DESCRIPTION

This utility is always called by portfix(1), but sometimes it is useful in its own right.

dupe takes exactly one argument, a path to a file. It will duplicate the [original] file to "<original>.orig" unless there is already an existing file with this exact name. In that case, the target file name will be "<original>.intermediate" and any existing file of that name will be unconditionally overwritten.

ERRORS

dupe will abort if zero or more than one argument is given, or if [original] is not a path to a valid regular file.
