revCopyFile problems on Mac OS X.6.4

I can confirm that the absolute file path does work using the Rev 4.0 (build
950) IDE in OSX but revCopyFile does not work from the command-line.

Also, in OS X, calling the shell from a Terminal session does not work
either: e.g. 

put $HOME &"/Desktop/test.txt" into tInfile
put $HOME &"/Desktop/outDir" into tOutDir

put "cp tInfile tOutDir" into tCmd
put shell(tCmd)

-- Nothing is returned either
