Copying all files and directories from one dir to another

See original GitHub issue

I’m using this command to copy all files from build directory to `dist:

copyfiles -u 1 build/* dist

It works fine except it doesn’t copy directories, How can we make sure it also copies the directories with files inside recursively?
