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
    assign sysut2,dsn=fileb,disp=new
    exec iebgener
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.

Sorry for the interruption. No need to adjust your set. ;)
