#7668 closed Patch (outdated)

Copy files/folders on the same remote connection

Description

Right now, if I need to copy files/folders, I need to download
them and reupload them (or 'cp' command via SSH).

It would be very useful to be able to copy a selection of files/folders on the same remote connection.

I know that the FTP protocol does not support copying files (only move).

When we select to 'view/edit' a file with the default editor, the file is downloaded in a temporary location, and then optionally deleted when it is uploaded.

Maybe the same kind of mechanism could be used, but for copying files? automatically download files and folders to copy in a temporary location and then upload them at the right place (and maybe adding a '_copy' prefix if the remote file already exists).

Thanks for the patch. I have the following comments:

  • the patch files are backwards, essentially removing this feature were it already there
  • marking all changes with * isn't needed, please get rid of it
  • menus.xrc contains unrelated changes
  • please use a single text file containing all diffs and attach it directly without an archive
  • class member variables are prefixed with m_ in FileZilla
  • member variables are named differently in local and remote file lists
  • if nothing is selected in the local file list, you launch the browser
  • any particular reason you're storing the whole item data and not just the filenames?
  • what if I want to cut in one tab and paste in another?
  • what if I want to cut in the local file list and paste in the remote file list?
  • what if I want to cut in FileZilla and paste in Explorer?
  • what if I want to cut in Explorer and paste in FileZilla?

One more: Drag&drop and cut/copy&paste are very similar, why not use the clipboard?
