    What you need to do is open two files. One for reading and one for writing. Take a byte from the read file and send it to the write file. Continue doing that until you cannot read any more. Then close both files and you have two copies. Do a search to find the actual code because I have seen it posted before.

    There's an example of "copy code" here.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
