Description: '
COPYCHARS is a new function which seems to be doing what the internal loop in COPYFILE is doing, but maybe a bit better. '
From AR 151': New function COPYCHARS for copying with EOL convention'
COPYFILE should presumably use this when copying a file of type TEXT (We might want to have a flag argument to allow the user to suppress EOL conversion if he wants to).  Is there a current owner of COPYFILE?]
