I think you've searched enough, as I don't think there is one.
I guess RT hasn't bothered because it's so simple using write. ie...
write %new-file read %original-file
Obviously you'd use write's refinements as required. And also
obviously it's a simple matter to code a function to do it, but
should the function include a check for over-writing another file or
not? And an option to rename the file? Best I think for the
programmers to write such a function based on their individual needs.
