#2477 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

FileInstall() to use the same Flag values as FileCopy to create destination directory

I made a feature request for this 6 years ago, (ticket #47), which was rejected at the time due to a proposed re-write of the FileInstall() code. Would it be possible for someone to have another look at this some time.

I would like FileInstall() to use the same Flag parameter values as FileCopy(), by adding an option to be able to create the FileInstall destination folder structure if it does not exist when the script is run and the file installs.

Quote:form FileCopy help

flag [optional] 
this flag determines whether to overwrite files if they already exist.
Can be a combination of the following:
 0 = (default) do not overwrite existing files
 1 = overwrite existing files
 8 = Create destination directory structure if it doesn't exist (See Remarks).

  • Resolution set to Rejected
  • Status changed from new to closed

As it is easy to add a DirCreate() before calling FileInstall() it will not be implemented.
