Is that proper BASIC-09 style? This would be like:
PARAM oldfile, newfile...
DIM buffer ....
(or something like that, I can't do actual correct BASIC-09 off the
top of my head)
Or would it be more useful as a general-purpose subroutine, to be
PARAM oldfile, newfile, buffer
The first one you'd just RUN filecopy("/dd/foo", "./bar")
The second would be :
The second way, when you add a MultiVue interface to your program, you
can shrink the buffer the subroutine uses, even if you don't have the
source for it.
