Copies the contents of an entire map into another id.


ds_map_copy(id, source);

Argument Description
id The id of the map you are copying to</>
source The id of the map you are copying from

Returns: N/A


You can use this function to copy the contents of one map into another one that you have previously created using ds_map_create(). If the ds_map that is being copied to is not empty, then this function will clear it first before copying. The original ds_map remains un-changed by this process.


inventory_2 = ds_map_create();
ds_map_copy(inventory_2, inventory_1);

The above code will create a new map and assign it to the variable "inventory_2". It will then copy the contents of the ds_map indexed in the variable "inventory_1" to this new map.
