 COPY FILE
 Copy a file to a new file or to a device
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Syntax

     COPY FILE <xcSourceFile> TO <xcTargetFile>|<xcDevice>

 Arguments

     <xcSourceFile> is the name of the source file to copy including the
     extension.

     <xcTargetFile> is the name of the target file including the
     extension.

     Both arguments can be specified as literal file names or as character
     expressions enclosed in parentheses.  COPY FILE supplies no default
     extensions.

     <xcDevice> is the name of the device where all subsequent output
     will be sent.  You can specify a device name as a literal character
     string or a character expression enclosed in parentheses.  Additionally,
     a device can be either local or network.  If you COPY TO a non-existing
     device, you create a file with the name of the device.  When specifying
     device names, do not use a trailing colon.

 Description

     COPY FILE is a file command that copies files to and from the Clipper
     default drive and directory unless you specify a drive and/or path.  If
     the <xcTargetFile> exists, it is overwritten without warning or error.

 Examples

     .  This example copies a file to a new file and then tests for
        the existence of the new file:

        COPY FILE Test.prg TO Real.prg
        ? FILE("Real.prg")                  // Result: .T.

 Files   Library is EXTEND.LIB.
