Creating new directories

Creating new directories

Creating new directories

(OP)
I am trying to write a sort of uploading script and so far it works and I am able to select a file and have it copy to a user specified directory.  However, if the specified directory does not exist, I want it to either create the directory and then copy the file to that directory, or ideally, ask the user if he/she wishes to create the new directory and then copy the file to that directory.
If you can help please let me know.

thanx!

RE: Creating new directories

Whoa!  You're planning to let people specify a directory on your system and then upload a file???  Are you nuts?  I hope you don't plan on keeping control of your system or any information which is on it.

DarkJedi,

Are you using Net::Ftp to do the transfers? The mkdir function in there will do what you need.

Oh - and I agree with Tom in general by the way - but I assume that you're writing this for an internal network.

Thanx, and yes.  This is strictly being used as a backup program on a secure ethernet.  I'm not that dumb. :)

RE: Creating new directories

If you use mkdir, be sure to set the umask to 0 before specifying the permissions.  Or, chmod afterwards.
