    Hi
    Am not sure this belongs here or in "All Other Software".

    I have an Applescript that creates a folder named "Target" on the desktop. I want to copy another folder, "Source" into Target with all its sub-folders and their files.

    How do I copy the contents of Source with all its sub-folders and files into Target?

    Is there a way to do this in Applescript?

    Alternatively a perl command will also work for me though I'd like to try it in Applescript.

    Thanks for your help.

    I have decided to use a perl script instead of applescript
