Default File Manipulation through Fluent (copy files)

unicrey is on a distinguished road

Is there any way to manipulate files through the FLUENT command line interface? My particular use case right now is to copy a UDF file from one directory to another and include that within a journal file.

I have tried the following so far -
1) pwd gives the current working directory, ls gives the items within the current directory -> so my first thought is to use the linux command cp, which is invalid
2) Again, chdir is used to change directory -> so I tried the windows cmd command copy... again invalid
3) I found a scheme command copy-file from this resource - , this was again not recognized.
4) The official guide does not list any commands for file manipulation including pwd, ls, chdir etc, which leads me to believe there might be some command not officially listed.

I am not sure where else to look for commands. Any help would be appreciated.
