• COPY_FILE

    From Willowolf@VERT to All on Tue Jan 8 22:46:00 2002
    I would like to copy my old auto.msg file to a file called auto.old. I am having trouble with the COPY_FILE function in Baja. I don't understand how to set up the variables correctly <str_var>. I know you set a variable with STR A, or STR B, etc, and then SETSTR B "%jmsgs\auto.msg" is how I have tried to set the path and file for the COPY_FILE command. I have read the Documentation for Baja, but can't figure it out. How do I copy a file in Baja from one file to another file, the copied having a different file name than the original?

    I have no programming experience, and help or examples would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    \\/

    str source destination
    # use forward-slash path
    set source "%jmsgs/auto.msg"
    set destination "%jmsgs/auto.old"
    copy_file source destination
    if_false
    print "Failed."
    else
    print "Successful."
    end_if
