revCopyFile on OS X

Hi Dick,

I think at some stage revCopyFile changed from taking a file as the 
destination to taking a folder name. Think of it as being the same as 
option-dragging a file to another folder in the Finder. It makes a new 
and identical copy of the file in the destination folder.

Your example stack uses file names and appears trying to create at 
least two copies of the original in the same folder but with different 
names. if this is what you want to do, you cane either do a revCopyFile 
and then a rename of each file, or if the files aren't too big to read 
into memory, use the URL binfile commands to read the file and write it 
out again to multiple files.
