revCopyFile broken on OS X?

"ditto" works perfectly.
Resource fork is maintained. File is copied with creator type etc all
intact and boots into the right application.
Two caveats which I would like to understand, just for my training on
a) I could not get this to work:
get shell ("ditto -rsrcFork ""e
&(gRemotePath&gRemoteFile)"e&"e& fld "localfolder""e)
instead I had to do this:
put ("ditto -rsrcFork ""e &(gRemotePath&gRemoteFile)"e&"e&
fld "localfolder""e) into tCommand
get shell (tCommand)
b) use of "get" why is it needed? is it because this is a function and
not a command?
Thanks, this list is such a great resource...
