      Description

      The CLI copy command disallows copying files from/to special device files like con and nul. Windows does allow this for the copy command.

      For example, if entering this on windows:
      copy con nul
      The copy process would ask the user for input until Control-Z or Control-C was pressed. When pressing Control-C windows would fail the Input/Output operation.

      When entering the same command on ReactOS it gives the error:
      ERROR_INVALID_NAME - The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
