Sometimes I use the standard perl Copy.pm module:
>From the Activestate perl docs:-
The File::Copy module provides two basic functions, copy and move, which are useful for
getting the contents of a file from one place to another.
The copy function takes two parameters: a file to copy from and a file to copy to. Either
argument may be a string, a FileHandle reference or a FileHandle glob. Obviously, if the
first argument is a filehandle of some sort, it will be read from, and if it is a file name
it will be opened for reading. Likewise, the second argument will be written to (and
created if need be).
