I simply want to copy an aiff file from a local hard disk to
a server. I can't locate a function to do this. Everything I've found is for creating, moving, deleting, etc, but not copying.

Toolbox don't have a copy routine.
Severals ways to do that :

simply open source, create destination and read source by block and wrote in dest until EOF then close. Your file is copied !

another way is to use Apple Event to tell the finder to do the copy for you... more complex but let the finder do the job and you'll have a marvellous progressing box indicating the job.

Oops i forgive somehing very important with the 1st solution :
don't forget to copy the ressource fork AND the data fork (if exist) in order to make a real copy of the file...

I have implemented the Open, Read, Write, Close functionality.
I have to copy more than a block at a time since the files are
large. I like the Apple Event comment, but I'm writing an extension for an app that handles all of the UI. Thanks for the
response.
