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. -- Carl Read
