Announcing fcp – A significantly faster alternative to cp

Inspired by many of the amazing new-wave Unix tools that have come about over the past several years (fzf, ripgrep, fd, lsd, etc.), I set out to create a more modern and performant version of the classic Unix cp command. Written in Rust due to the excellent ergonomics and performance characteristics of the language, fcp copies large files and directories in a fraction of the time that cp does.

Check out fcp's GitHub repo for installation and usage instructions, as well as benchmark results showcasing its speed.

Feel free to ask me any questions about the project, and check out the discussion on Hacker News.
