Announcing fcp 0.2.1: A significantly faster alternative to the classic cp command

Hello everyone, I've just released version 0.2.1 of fcp, a CLI tool which serves as a significantly faster alternative to the classic Unix cp(1) command, copying large files and directories in a fraction of the time. This update brings performance enhancements in the form of reducing the number of syscalls made, and reducing heap memory usage by nearly an order of magnitude. Check out the README for installation instructions, benchmarks, and an explanation of how fcp achieves high-performance (for those curious).

If you have any questions about the project, feel free to comment below!
