Using a PC perl script to copy files on a Mac server
- OK I give in. I seem to have exhausted some references trying to find
I have a series of OS/X servers. They contain EPS files.
I need to distribute those EPS files from a master folder into a structured
folder system using a process governed by a PC.
The mac server is mapped to by the PC.
Making the folder structures is easy.
There are no user permissions to consider; everything is set to free and
easy access in this closed environment.
The problem is that when I copy I lose some Mac resource data. Therefore
software that should recognise the copied EPS file no longer does so.
I have tried various hacks at opening binary files to read and write. Also
File::Copy::syscopy. And combinations of both.
I also tried physically renaming the source file with a ".eps" extension (by
default the creator application doesn't apply the extension). After copying,
I removed the extension.
This helped, but (if you understand EPS files) the final resulting file had
no tiff preview - although it WAS readable by apps like Distiller.
If I have outlined the problem clearly, does anyone have a clue for me as to
