CP/M 1.3 Question

Not sure if I asked this to the list but I have a version (1.35) of
CP/M. On that floppy there is a version of PIP that does not act
like the manual. Of course I'm using a 2.2 manual, which is a newer

I'm trying to copy some files from one disk to another but this PIP
does not seem to have any multiple file copy.

I tried: PIP B:=A:*.* per the instructions and get a filename error.
It's real tedious copying each file, one-by-one.

The other thing that I wonder about is that there does not seem to be
any allownace for file types on the version that I'm using. I tried
some of the text vs binary options and it won't accept them. Anyone
know if these are necessary when doing disk copys? The files seem to
run ok when copied.

I have not been able to find any manuals for this version on the
internet anywhere. I have checked the CP/M archives but no go.
