ABAP code example for Function Module PFL_COPY_OS_FILE

The ABAP code below is a full code listing to execute function module PFL_COPY_OS_FILE including all data declarations. The code uses the latest in-line data declaration syntax but I have included an abap code snipet at the end to show how declarations would look using the original method of declaring data variables up front. This will allow you to compare and fully understand the new inline method. Please note some of the newer syntax such as the @DATA is not available until a later 4.70 service pack (SP8).
