copyfile

Copy file

Calling Sequence

copyfile('source','destination')
[status,message] = copyfile('source','destination')

Description

copyfile('source','destination') copies the file or directory , source (and subdirectories) to the file or directory, destination.

If source is a directory, destination can not be a file. copyfile replaces existing files without warning.

[status, message] = copyfile('source','destination') copies source to destination, returning the status and a message.

Whatever the operating system, if the copy succeeds, the status is 1 and the message is empty ; if the copy fails, the status is 0 and the message is not empty.

The timestamp given to the destination file is identical to that taken from source file.

Examples

copyfile(SCI+"/etc/scilab.start",TMPDIR+"/scilab.start")
[status,message] = copyfile(SCI+"/etc/scilab.start",TMPDIR);
