Command tcl.steal-file Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP
Category TCL (746)
Description only valid way to move a file from another account into the current account.

This physically moves a file to the current master dictionary from another master dictionary. "steal-file" prompts for the account name and requires "sys2" privileges. It also requires that the user invoking "steal-file" is not protected against updating the file at any level, master dictionary, file level dictionary, or data file level.

After "stealing" a file, the former owner has no reference to it, not even visitation rights. He or she can get visitation rights by building a "q-pointer" to where the file moved, or by referencing it via a "file path".
