func copyb (src, dst, size=)
/* DOCUMENT copyb, src, dst

         or copyb, openb(src_name), createb(dst_name)
     Copy binary file SRC to binary file DST.
     Check for "obsolete/" subdirectory of Yorick home directory for

     extensions of the openb function to old file formats.
     Use the size= keyword to specify a non-default (4 Mbyte) size for
     the members of the output file family.

     If you habitually include basfix.i, you may want to use the

     basfix_openb function to open the src file.
