scp and hidden files

Today, I recognized that scp does not copy hidden files……. or that I do not know how to use this command to copy hidden files (directories).
Today, I also recognized that rsync is a very handy tool I have to learn how to use.

For example, to copy contents of one file system form one host to another file system on another machine, do:

# rsync -av /source_fs/ loginName@targetHostName:/target_fs/
