- Method dup2
int dup2(Stdio.File to)
Duplicate a file over another.
This function works similarly to assign(), but instead of making the argument a reference to the same file, it creates a new file with the same properties and places it in the argument.
1on success and
0(zero) on failure.
In Pike 7.7 and later to need not be open, in which case a new fd is allocated.
Note also that to is also assigned to the same backend (if any) as this object.
