Author: Mark Stosberg

scp may come in handy for local files copies as well, when you want to copy files to another account on the same system where you don;'t have permission, and root access is not desired or available:

scp file.txt otheruser@localhost:/dst/dir

You could use one of the other tips to set this up to be passwordless if you use it frequently.
