Another way of thinking of it would be: dd is more general-purpose, but less
user-friendly. cp is less general-purpose, but more user-friendly.
In Unix, everything is a file, yes, but only in a certain context. In the
context of cp, the word "file" is a bit more restrictive in its meaning.
Hope this helps.
