Add a new method java.io.File.copyTo() to copy a file, including any and all 
metadata. Presently there is no robust way to copy files without writing native 
code or using non-standard classes, since all the metadata like the type/creator/
resources will be lost.


EVALUATION Will be part of the new I/O package. Targeted for the Tiger release. david.biagini@Eng 2000-02-09 This functionality will be provided by the new filesystem interface (4313887). -- mr@eng 2000/2/18
