A simple 'cp' loop to copy to mutiple directories


for object in `ls`
do cp /path/file1 $object/subdir; done

This works when running the script from the parent directory of the
dirs you want to copy to. That is, it will copy the named file to the
dirs/dir trees listed when you do an 'ls' command in the script's
working directory.
