Copying empty files


You cannot copy an empty file (zero byte length) with the <COPY command. 
To copy an empty file you may use the <TYPE command: 

 
  type emptyFile >targetFile


Note that the XCOPY command can copy empty files. The COPY command of 4OS2 
can also copy empty files. 
And, of course, you can also write a REXX program to copy empty files.
