my concern (docs not checked) is whether file::copy will handle a
filename in the dest dir with missing dir parts. as in the dest is /foo
and the file is found in bar/baz.text. will copy work with
/foo/bar/baz.text is bar isn't there? unix cp won't handle that. this
was my guess as to some of the errors the OP was getting but given no
proper debug printing and the usual nonsense from the OP, i wasn't sure.
