Usage Notes: 

Number of copies is used during automatic COS selection (see COS keyword). This is normally 1 or 2, although some sites may allow up to 5. The default number of copies is defined at compile time, and may be overridden by the setting of the copies parameter in the global section of the hsirc file. 

The number of copies defined for a Class of Service can be displayed by using the LSCOS command. 

Example: 

1. Set the default number of copies for the session 

copies = 1; put myfile

         

2. Override the session setting for one command 

>put copies=2 myfile
