Subject': Lisp': FB': Should complete file name for COPY'
cc': jellinek'
When I am asked to give a target name for the copy of some file, I should be able to give an incomplete name and have the missing fields filled in from the source. In particular, I should just be able to give a device name (e.g. {DSK}) and have the filename etc repacked for me. This is real easy to do with PACKFILENAME (give an old name as the source of missing fields) and would make the copy sooo much more convenient.'
