FILECOPY

The FILECOPY command copies the contents of one file (the source file) to another file (the target file). When the target file already exists, the file is overwritten with the copy.

Syntax

FILECOPY source-file-name target-file-name

Arguments

source-file-name

A text expression specifying the name of the file you want to copy from. Unless the file is in the current directory, you must include the name of the directory object in the name of the file.

Note:

Directory objects are defined in the database, and they control access to directories and file in those directories. You can use the CDA command to identify and specify a current directory object. Contact your Oracle DBA for access rights to a directory object where your database user name can read and write files.
target-file-name

A text expression specifying the name of the file you want to copy to. Unless the file is in the current directory, you must include the name of the directory object in the name of the file.

Examples

Example 9-120 Copying a File

The following statement copies the file log.txt from your session's current directory object to file oldlog.txt in the same directory.

FILECOPY 'log.txt' 'oldlog.txt'
