Description Transfers a DOS file into a Pick item.

"DOS.path" is the directory where the DOS.file is stored. If no directory is specified, the current working directory is assumed.

"DOS.file" is the explicit name of the source MS-DOS file. Complete pathnames must be used if the files are not on the current working directory.

"Pick.file.reference" is the name of the Pick destination file. Just as in the "copy" command, the "(" is required before the Pick file reference.

"item-id" is the name of the destination item. If not specified, the "DOS.file" name is used.

If a directory is specified, no space is allowed between "DOS.path" and "DOS.file".
