Hi All,
I'm working with the IFS, I've gotten some great help from the list in the
past on issues that I have run into.

I am trying to copy objects from one directory to another. or sometimes
within the same directory.  Here is what I have not been able to get around.
I want to copy all the files from one directory to another.  If I want to
copy the files using a wildcard; such as CPY DIR(/HOME/*.JPG)
TODIR(/HOME2/*.BMP) I get an errorthat I can't use the pattern in this way.
If I just copy from one directory to another and don't change the file
extension it's fine.  But if I try to get the extensions to change I have
not been able to do this in one step.  Is it possible or will I have to
either copy them to the same directory to change the name and then move
them, or copy them to the new directory and then rename them.  This CPY
command seems to be extremely picky.

TIA
Ron
