25.55. FILECOPY filename,filename

[<<<] [>>>]

Copy a file. The first file is the existing one, the second is the name of the new file. If the destination file already exists then the command overwrites the file. If the destination file is to be created in a directory that does not exist yet then the directory is created automatically.

In the current version of the command you can not use wild characters to specify more than one file to copy, and you can not concatenate files using this command. You also have to specify the full file name as destination file and this is an error to specify only a directory where to copy the file.

Later versions of this command may implement these features.

If the program can not open the source file to read or the destination file can not be created then the command raises error.
