Manipulating files

Manipulating files: C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems
Manipulating files: C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems

The C library comes with file manipulation functions to rename a file, rename(), and to delete a file, unlink(). The rename() function is given two arguments, the path name of the original file and the new name string. The unlink() function removes the named file. The C library lacks a function to copy a file, though you can write your own. Open the original file for reading and the duplicate for writing.
