Subject RE: file staging question
Date Tue, 29 Sep 2015 17:45:11 GMT
Awesome. Thanks Chris. I'm actually already using the cp command in my exe block to do something
similar. I had been wondering if file staging was a better (or more elegant) way to do what
I needed to do. But, I will just continue doing what I'm doing :)  Thanks!
