The ruby fileutil function cp_r, copies a directory, all of its files and subdirectories to a target location. This is very useful when you are trying to sync 2 directories. However, by default it will copy the directory as a subdirectory of the supplied target directory. So:
cp_r "c:\\fly", "c:\\soup"
would give you:
Now you have a fly in your soup. This is a serious problem. What if you were trying to sync your stick and donkey folders?
To get around this, just stick a period at the end of the the original directory path. Like so:
cr_r "c:\\fly\\.", "c:\\soup"
