19.7. Copying or Moving a File

19.7.3. Discussion

On Unix, rename( ) can't move files across filesystems. To do so, copy the file to the new location and then delete the old file:

if (copy("/tmp/code.c","/usr/local/src/code.c")) {

If you have multiple files to copy or move, call copy( ) or rename( ) in a loop. You can operate only on one file each time you call these functions.
