I want to use the cp command in a bash script I am writing to copy the contents of a directory into another created directory.
From my under standing the cp command needs the entire path to find where the file is stored
cp ~/home/Documents/Folder1/file.txt ~/home/NewDirectory/
However, if this bash script with the cp command in it is run on multiple computers the path will never be the same.
The only info I know is the folder the bash script is stored in and the sub directories to be copied. Bellow is an example of the directory structure
So for example I want to cp file1.txt from Dir2 into Dir 3 with the bash script being in the parent Dir1
