B.26 tcopy: Converts between table formats

tcopy is a table copying tool. It simply copies a table from one place to another, but since you can specify the input and output formats as desired, it works as a converter from any of the supported input formats to any of the supported output formats.

tcopy is just a stripped-down version of tpipe - it doesn't do anything that tpipe can't, but the usage is slightly simplified. It is provided as a drop-in replacement for the old tablecopy (uk.ac.starlink.table.TableCopy) tool which was supplied with earlier versions of STIL and TOPCAT - it has the same arguments and behaviour as tablecopy, but is implemented somewhat differently and will in some cases be more efficient.
