The COPY directive can be used to save a copy of either input statements, or output, or both, in an output file. For example
OPEN 'GEN.REC','GEN.OUT'; CHANNEL=2,3; FILETYPE=output
COPY [PRINT=statements] 2
COPY [PRINT=output] 3
will keep a record of all the statements in the file GEN.REC and of all the output in the file GEN.OUT.Setting PRINT=* stops any copying to the specified channel. For example
COPY [PRINT=*] 2
stops copying to GEN.REC.
You can thus obtain output in more than one style (for example rtf and html as well as plain-text) by opening, and then copying, to files in the required styles (see OPEN).
Directives: OPEN, PRINT, READ.
