Copying files between hosts.

Unix hosts are usually connected together by a network. You can copy files between your local host and other remote hosts with the rcp (remote copy) command.

   rcp source_file destination_file

The source_file is the name of the file to be copied; the destination_file is the name of the file in which the copy is to be placed.
