For the manual of cp for freebsd : https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?cp
Ah I see!
In Stuarty's guide there is a full stop (again I thought it was a typo) but it separated from the end of the path by a space - is this correct or should the full stop be directly after the path (no space)?
As it happens that man page was what I was referring to and copied the -R meaning from.
