Newbie: easy filecopy?

Another ascpect to my question of yesterday:

The problem with 
f=open(aFile)
x=f.read()
f.close
f.open(toFile)
f.write(x)
f.close
is, that some special ASCII-codes are not copied as usual 
under Windows-systems, so e.g. CarriageReturn (tested with normal
Asccii-text).

Hints?

Ciao,
Holger
