Hi friends,

I just want to copy a layer in my script. I can't seem to find any resources regarding this, but it's like one of the most basic things to do manually in ArcMap itself.

Essentially, I just want to be able to copy a layer (and then rename it a bit and change it's source).

How is this done?
