include filesys.e 
namespace filesys 
public function copy_file(sequence src, sequence dest, integer overwrite = 0) 

copies a file.

  1. src : a sequence, the name of the file or directory to copy
  2. dest : a sequence, the new name or location of the file
  3. overwrite : an integer; 0 (the default) will prevent an existing destination file from being overwritten. Non-zero will overwrite the destination file.
