Only saw this now, and yes you are correct cp does not copy the files
resource fork unless you tell it to. You could also have used the maccp
command which comes as part of the developer tools pkg, it'll do it without
the extra cp flags. (You should have developer tools installed anyway as
it'll give you Project & Interface Builder, so you can compile Cocoa apps
from source if you need to.)
This isn't an issue if you've formatted your disk to use UFS instead of HFS+
though.I advise against using OS X's implementation of UFS, as it hasn't
been updated in a few years now.
The whole thing, just like Darwin's error masking of HFS+ case
insensitivity, is just one of those visible seams where they welded NEXTSTEP
and traditional MacOS together.
