Operations on the file system can be done directly within SIC.
- SIC> SIC DIRECTORY [NewDir]
controls the working directory. Without argument, the current working
directory is listed. With one argument, the working directory is changed.
Standard Unix syntax applies to change the working directory.
- SIC> SICSIC COPY FileIn FileOut
Copies file FileIn to FileOut. Standard SIC
file naming convention applies.
- SIC> SICSIC DELETE File
Deletes file named File. Caution: no
confirmation is required.
- SIC> SICSIC RENAME FileOld FileNew
Renames file FileOld to FileNew. Standard
SIC file naming convention applies. Both files should reside on the same
disk. To move files across different disks, use SIC COPY and SIC DELETE.
The file operations through the SIC command should be used preferentially
to operations through the SYSTEM command for portability, specially
in command procedures.
