Flag type

Flag type is one of the following strings:

shallow
Copy only immediate members for groups
soft
Expand soft links into new objects
ext

ref

Copy references and any referenced objects, i.e., objects that the references point to.

Referenced objects are copied in addition to the objects

specified on the command line and reference datasets are populated with correct reference values. Copies of referenced datasets outside the copy range specified on the command line will normally have a different name from the original.

(Default:Without this option, reference value(s) in any

reference datasets are set to NULL and referenced objects are not copied unless they are otherwise within the copy range specified on the command line.)

noattr
Copy object without copying attributes
allflags

Switches all flags from the default to the non-default setting

These flag types correspond to the following API symbols
