ZCOPY V3.1, Copyright (C) 1993-94 by Chris Buijs
ZCOPY is a small directory/file-copy utility i wrote because i needed a
copy-program like XCOPY for installation purposes, the only thing was
that XCOPY always overwrite files even when the source/target file are
the same, i needed a copy-utility that skipped files that are the same,
so i wrote ZCOPY and added some more options.
