movefile

moves file or directory

Calling Sequence

movefile(source, destination)
[status, message] = movefile(source, destination)

Arguments

source

a character string.

destination

a character string.

status

an integer: the status of the operation.

message

a character string: a message about an error.

Description

movefile(source, destination) moves the file or directory source (and subdirectories) to the file or directory destination.

If source is a directory, destination cannot be a file.

movefile replaces existing files without warning.

[status, message] = movefile(source, destination) moves source to destination, returning the status and a message.

Whatever the operating system, if the move succeeds, the status is 1 and the message is empty; if the move fails, the status is 0 and the message is not empty.

Examples

copyfile(SCI+"/etc/scilab.start",TMPDIR+"/scilab.start")
[status,message] = movefile(TMPDIR+"/scilab.start",TMPDIR+"/renamed_scilab.start")
