there is no system call or standard c library function to copy files. To
avoid researching about ideal buffer sizes and whatever other details
that may be involved in copying files -- the source for the gnu cp
program is quite big --, I'd recommend using:
/* see "system" c function: man 3 system */
system( "/bin/cp source_file target_file" );
unfortunately this solution is probably not portable outside the unix
environment. But then, this is a linux-c++ list :)
