[REBOL] Re: recursive directory copying...
From: antonr:iinet:au at: 13-May-2003 14:13
I wrote a tree function which works well so far.
You can insert user-code to be executed as each
directory is visited. eg:
tree/quiet/code %start-dir/ [
print rejoin dir-path ; current relative directory
foreach file files [print dir/:file] ; all the files
Since you can modify the user-code block, you could easily
change its behaviour for your purpose.
Here's the necessary init code for a full example:
rebsite: select load-thru http://www.reboltech.com/index.r [folder "Anton"]
clear find rebsite %index.r
do load-thru rebsite/library/include.r
include [rebsite/library/tree.r [tree] rebsite/library/dir-utils.r [push
tree %./ ; <- now use it...
The downside to my tree is that it is quite big compared to
recursive functions because it is stack-based, it needs 'push and 'pop
from dir-utils, and 'include needs to be defined first.
You could rip out the three functions you need from tree.r and dir-utils.r
The upside is it works and seems to me to be quite stable.
It catches errors and prints them out, but that doesn't
stop the function.
