    Here are some options for the copy command (cp)
    -a, --archive
    same as -dpR

    make a backup of each existing destination file

    -b like --backup but does not accept an argument

    copy contents of special files when recursive

    -d same as --no-dereference --preserve=link

    -f, --force
    if an existing destination file cannot be opened, remove it and
    try again

    -i, --interactive
    prompt before overwrite

    -H follow command-line symbolic links

    -l, --link
    link files instead of copying

    -L, --dereference
    always follow symbolic links

    -P, --no-dereference
    never follow symbolic links

    -p same as --preserve=mode,ownership,timestamps

    preserve the specified attributes (default: mode,owner-
    ship,timestamps) and security contexts, if possible additional
    attributes: links, all

    dont preserve the specified attributes

    use full source file name under DIRECTORY

    -R, -r, --recursive
    copy directories recursively

    remove each existing destination file before attempting to open
    it (contrast with --force)

    control creation of sparse files

    --strip-trailing-slashes remove any trailing slashes from each SOURCE

    -s, --symbolic-link
    make symbolic links instead of copying

    -S, --suffix=SUFFIX
    override the usual backup suffix

    -t, --target-directory=DIRECTORY
    copy all SOURCE arguments into DIRECTORY

    -T, --no-target-directory
    treat DEST as a normal file

    -u, --update
    copy only when the SOURCE file is newer than the destination
    file or when the destination file is missing

    -v, --verbose
    explain what is being done

    -x, --one-file-system
    stay on this file system

    --help display this help and exit

    -Z, --context=CONTEXT
    set security context of copy to CONTEXT

    You can redirect this to cp to another file like so.
    cp /etc/exports > ~/exports.txt
