Description Michael Meeks 2012-01-20 07:17:39 UTC
The implementation of the FileCopier causes problems with sal - needing the system file-handler to be exposed for various statting methods.

It is unclear that we really need the FileCopier class either - it looks like it is used only internally to the tools/ code and in only one place: DirEntry::CopyTo.

And then only if:

And then only on Unix ;-) we should audit to ensure that all CopyTo's only use FSYS_ACTION_COPYFILE - the best way is prolly to drop the nActions flag completely, and then do a full re-compile to catch all the call sites.

We should also check and remove this lot:

#define FSYS_ACTION_RECURSIVE       0x02    // deep through dircetory structure
#define FSYS_ACTION_USERECYCLEBIN   0x04    // move to recycle bin
#define FSYS_ACTION_MOVE            0x08    // delete after copy (=> move)
#define FSYS_ACTION_CONTINUE        0x10    // continue on error
#define FSYS_ACTION_KEEP_EXISTING   0x20    // do not overwrite objects in

From the header, and any code paths that go with them too.

It'd be great to drop that big block of cruft :-)
