How can copy an ascii file on another one?

I have to copy a file "xxxx.txt" on another "yyyyy.txt". How can i do? I see in IO package there isn't this method in class FILE. Thanks for helping me. Gonne.

// Open an input stream which allows you to read the source file.
BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(srcFileName));

// Open an output stream which allows to write to a destnation file.
BufferedWriter writer = new BufferedWriter(new FileWriter(destFileName));

// Create a buffer of some reasonable size. The reading and writing will be done
// in chunks of that buffer size.
char[] buffer = new buffer[4096];

int bytesRead;
while ((bytesRead = reader.read(buffer, 0, buffer.length)) > 0)
{
  writer.write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);
}

// Close streams
reader.close();
writer.close();

You will also have to take care of IOException handling.
