Subject [jira] [Created] (IO-384) New FileUtils method to copy file which might increase in size
Date Sun, 02 Jun 2013 12:08:20 GMT
Sebb created IO-384:
-----------------------

             Summary: New FileUtils method to copy file which might increase in size
                 Key: IO-384
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-384
             Project: Commons IO
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Sebb


As mentioned in IO-383, FileUtils.doCopyFile caches the file size.

This means that a growing file (e.g. a log file) may cause the method to report failure.

It might be useful to have a method which keeps looping until there is no more input; this
should not throw an IOE if the sizes are different.
More data may have been added - or the file truncated - between completing the copy and checking
the size.

The method should return the total bytes written; the caller can then check if the count is
OK.
