Yes... I forgot I had used that, time ago.


At least to me that is more natural than cp. I suggest you put cat
on the wiki, but not cp.

Or both :-)

What I wonder is why only dd is in the current instructions.

Because 'dd' is the tool typically used for that sort of thing. 'cp'
and 'cat' in that context are at least a bit unusual. Besides, there
isn't really much gained by adding two alternatives ....
