Some interesting and "intuitive" implementations of file copying.
1) open 15,8,15;print#15,"c0:fileb=filea";close 15
2) cp filea fileb
3) copy filea fileb
4) pip fileb=filea
5) assign sysut1,dsn=filea,disp=old
6) Oh bugger me, I can't figure this out in Windows.
I offer 100 GPs to any who can guess where 1-5 come from.
#3 has at least 2 answers.
Sorry for the interruption. No need to adjust your set. ;)
