WAD Copy's command dialogue not working

Apr 18, 2014
TCC 16.03.55 x64 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]
TCC Build 55 Windows 7 Build 7601 Service Pack 1

The help for COPY says:
/= Display the COPY command dialog to help you set the filename and command line options. You cannot specify any other arguments on the command line
but it's not working:
d:\temp>copy /=
TCC: (Sys) The system cannot find the file specified.

     0 files copied
and the command dialogue doesn't appear.

The help also says:
If you don't specify any arguments, COPY will display its command dialog.
but it doesn't, it displays the quick help instead:
Usage : COPY [/A:[[-][+]rhsdaecjot] /CDEFGH /FTP:A /I"text" /JKLM /MD /N[dejnst]
/O:[-]adegnrstu /OPQR /Sn /TUVWXZ] source [+] ... [/A /B] [TO:] destination [..
.] [/A /B]
although that might be a documentation error rather than a bug.

The same problems are seen with MOVE, which I guess shares a lot of code with COPY.

The command dialogs have not been enabled yet in the alpha. Maybe in another build or two, but for now I want people testing the commands and functions, not the UI.

But it shouldn't show the quick help -- you probably have an alias defined for COPY.

I reported this against v16, not the alpha, as I hit the problem in v16, but you're correct, a forgotten alias is the cause.
