Raspbery Pi SD copy workaround

Hello, I read the similiar questions and replies. I was just curious. I haven’t had a good look at Manjaro in a long time and I decided to give it a try, burnt to sd loaded no issues, read a couple of blogs and succesfully loaded Vulkan/mesa from git, checked it with vulkaninfo and changed branch to testing. Now I want to copy the sd to a external ssd. Does anyone know the packages Rasperry org use to create the sd card copy function? Or some command line instructions an old bloke can understand. I can just reinstall, but that would be defeatist! Thank You for your kind wisdom and merry jibes.

You could simply dd the SD card over to the SSD, then when booted, run sudo resize-fs to expand the root filesystem again.
