A zippy alternative to `cp`, a tool to copy files and directories

Usage: cpz[EXE] [OPTIONS] <FROM>... <TO>

          The file(s) or directory(ies) to be copied
          If multiple files are specified, they will be copied into the target destination rather
          than to it. The same is true of directory names (`foo/`, `.`, `..`): that is, `cpz a b/`
          places `a` inside `b` as opposed to `cpz a b` which makes `b` become `a`.

          The copy destination

  -f, --force
          Overwrite existing files

  -h, --help
          Print help (use `-h` for a summary)

  -V, --version
          Print version
