Edlin: C (Copy)--Notes

Default settings

If you omit line1 or line2, Edlin copies only the current line. You must include the commas on the command line even if you omit one or both of these parameters.

If you omit the count parameter, Edlin copies the lines one time.

After Edlin copies lines, you can use the Edlin l (list) command at the Edlin prompt to see the correctly renumbered lines.

Entry error

For example, the following command results in an error message:
