NAME
       tt_file_copy - copy objects from one file to a new file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <Tt/tt_c.h>
       Tt_status tt_file_copy(const char *oldfilepath,
                              const char *newfilepath);

DESCRIPTION
       The tt_file_copy() function copies all objects that exist on the speci-
       fied file to a new file.  If any objects already exist on  newfilepath,
       they are not overwritten by the copy (that is, they are not removed.)

       The  oldfilepath  argument  is  a pointer to the name of the file whose
       objects are to be copied.  The newfilepath argument is a pointer to the
       name of the file on which to create the copied objects.

RETURN VALUE
       Upon  successful  completion,  the  tt_file_copy() function returns the
       status of the operation as one of the following Tt_status values:

          TT_OK   The operation completed successfully.

                  The ToolTalk service could not access the specified ToolTalk
                  database in the expected  place.   It  does  not  appear  to
                  exist; administrative action is required.
