copy in PHP

Syntax of copy in PHP

int copy(string path, string destination[, resource context ])

Copies the file at path to destination. If the operation succeeds, the function returns true; otherwise, it returns false. If the file at the destination exists, it will be replaced. The optional context parameter can make use of a valid context resource created with the stream_con text_create() function

$file = 'example.txt';
$newfile = 'example.txt.bak';

if (!copy($file, $newfile)) {
    echo "failed to copy $file...\n";
