Copy a Directory Recursively using SCP
scp -r [/local/path/] [user@host]:[/remote/path]
-r switch causes scp to copy recursively. It copies all files and directories under the one specified.
You can use the * wildcard as your local path to copy the current directory and everything below it.
You can also use the rsync command to copy files in a similar manner. rsync has a few more options and the advantage that it only copies changed files.
rsync -a [/local/path/] [user@host]:[remote/path/]
rsync -a ~/git/code/research/LambdaHOL/* firstname.lastname@example.org:/data/LambdaHOL
