Curious...p.38 makes reference to the of_fileCopy function of the PFC file
service, yet any further description or discussion is missing from the rest of
the text.

Although

of_fileCopy (string, string, [boolean])

may seem fairly obvious (source, dest, overwrite?), there are other more
obvious functions that have deeper description. At least with it listed on
p.38, I know I can go looking for it in the PFC libraries themselves, but...

You are absolutely right. When I wrote that part of the book I was working
with the beta copy and of_fileCopy hadn't been written. The white papers said
that it would be there so I put it down as a note to myself to go back and add
more about it. Of course, by the time that they put in the function it was a
dim and distant memory.

That's my fault. I hate it when I miss things. Good eye! I'm glad that it
happened on one of the more obvious functions!
