How to copy files

To copy a file in Python, you can use the built-in "shutil" module. Here is an example of how to copy a file:

import shutil

# Copy the file "original.txt" to "copy.txt"
shutil.copy("original.txt", "copy.txt")

You can also use the "os" module to copy files in Python. Here is an example of how to do that:

import os

# Open the original file and the copy file in read and write mode
with open("original.txt", "r") as original_file, open("copy.txt", "w") as copy_file:
   # Read the contents of the original file
   contents =
   # Write the contents to the copy file

Both of these methods will create a new file called "copy.txt" that is a copy of the original file "original.txt".
