always troubles with copy

always troubles with copy

Hi everybody,

For copying all files of a path to another, I use this way

! Copie du répertoire Photos dans le dossier SiteWeb
run(' /c copy photos\*.* SiteWeb\photos\*.*',1)

Now I want to copy the entire path SiteWeb to another place. I try this

! Copie du répertoire SiteWeb dans le dossier du serveur
run(' /c copy SiteWeb\*.* c:\Program Files\EasyPHP-5.3.9\www\Test\*.*',1)

but I have an error "too many parameters". DO you know why?

The final must be :

! Copie du répertoire SiteWeb dans le dossier du serveur
RepertoireCible" = 'c:\Program Files\EasyPHP-5.3.9\www\Test\'
run(' /c copy SiteWeb\*.* '&RepertoireCible&'*.*',1)

but this way don't works.

Thank's for your help

best regards


RE: always troubles with copy


you must read

run(' /c copy SiteWeb\*.* '&RepertoireCible"&'*.*',1)

and not

run(' /c copy SiteWeb\*.* '&RepertoireCible&'*.*',1)

RE: always troubles with copy


I think the problem is the space between Program and Files in the string 'c:\Program Files\EasyPHP-5.3.9\www\Test\'.

In fact, the real code is :

FILEDIALOG('Choisissez un répertoire!',GNT:DossierSiteWeb, ,FILE:LongName+FILE:KeepDir+FILE:Directory)
run(' /c copy SiteWeb\*.* '&GNT:DossierSiteWeb&'*.*',1)

where GNT:DossierSiteWeb may be c:\Program Files\xxxx\yyyy (so, with a space)

What is the solution to resolve this.

Thank's for your help

Have a good day

RE: always troubles with copy

Finally, the good way is

run(' /c xcopy SiteWeb\*.*/e/y '&shortpath(clip(GNT:DossierSiteWeb))&'*.*',1)
