            Bug ID: 9106
           Summary: cp -i (prompt before overwrite) does not work
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.24.x
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Other
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: fredrik at fornwall.net
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

Passing the -i flag (prompt before overwrite) to busybox cp does not seem to
work:

$ touch 1 2
$ busybox cp -i 1 2
$

Expected behaviour (as observed with coreutils):
$ touch 1 2
$ cp -i 1 2
cp: overwrite '2'?
