OK... I'm thinking I'd only want to write this once, so I'm looking at
the general case, a subroutine module "filecopy" or something like
that. I'm not really familiar with the way BASIC-09 passes arrays
around, so, would it be better as filecopy(oldfile,newfile) with a
built-in buffer, or as filecopy(oldfile,newfile,buffer) which takes a
buffer from the calling module?
