Comments:

  A minus sign after an option disables the option.
  If the source and/or destination is a drive, for example 
  "a:" then it is treated as a floppy disk, otherwise it is 
  treated as an image file.
  The source and destination can be the same drive; DISKCOPY will 
  first copy from the source, and then prompt you to swap floppy 
  disks. Then it will write to the destination.
  DISKCOPY uses the Linux rawrite format for its image files. 
  Therefore the image files from DISKCOPY can be used by 
  Rawrite and vice versa.
  DISKCOPY cannot read from or overwrite Linux floppy disks. 
  It can, however, write a Linux floppy image to a DOS disk.
  DISKCOPY supports NLS (national language support).
