           Summary: scp(1) man page feedback
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 5.2p1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: scp
        AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: dgatwood at mac.com

An anonymous web commenter recently pointed out to me that it would be
helpful for the scp man page to include an EXAMPLES section with a
couple of common use cases.  Not a particularly big deal for me, but
it's a trivial enough thing to add, e.g.

To copy a local file to a remote server:
.Dl Li scp my_local_file.txt me at example.com:remote_name.txt
To copy a remote file to the current directory:
.Dl Li scp me at example.com:uploaded_files/remote_filename.txt .
To copy a directory full of files to a remote server:
.Dl Li scp -r local_directory me at example.com:uploaded_files/
