in reply to How to copy files ?

a quick look at  perldoc perlfunc or perldoc.com suggests that there is no built-in copy function in perl

Limbic~Region wisely suggests File::Copy which is a core module. (You won't have to install it) and nicely returns (1) on success, (0) on failure and stuffs something useful int $!

Other people tend to do stuff like:

use strict; system('cp','/path/to/file1','path/to/file2'); my $err_num=$?>>8; die "bad copy num:$err_num\n" if $err_num;
