    I am not sure whether the defncopy is platform dependent or not, but i gess it should be platform independent. If you just want the code of a procedure in a file, following work around can work.

    write a shell script as below

    isql -U<User_name> -S<server_name> -P<password> -o<output_file> << eof
    sp_helptext sybsystemprocs..<procedure_name>

    Hope this will helpful

    defncopy is platform independent (all utilities are platform independent; even platform independent dump files can be produced).

    Refer to the manual (choose your ASE version; except for the Installation Guide, they are all platform independent) for syntax, etc. There is no difference in syntax across the platforms.
