Here's a sample AppleScript. 

	tell application "Finder"
		set myFile to POSIX file "~/desktop/file.txt"
		set myNewFile to POSIX file "~/desktop/file2.txt"
		copy myFile to myNewFile
	end tell
on error myErr number myNr
	set myScript to "answer error \"A problem occurred (" & myErr & ")\""
	tell application "LiveCode 4.6.1" to do script myScript
end try
