Files, Versions and DCL COPY?

» close window

The Question is:

Is there a single command that takes two files and merges them into a file that
 has the same name as one of the original files?
For example,
$ COPY A.A;1,B.B;1 B.B;0
ERROR seen is:
-RMS-E-FLK, file currently locked by another user
Same problem happens if you use the APPEND command.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard cannot immediately think of a single-line DCL command
  for this purpose, using arbitrary (relative) version specifications.
