    Applescripts copy a file from current working directory to Application\folder1
    Hi All,

    I'm trying to copy a file "" from "current working directory" to Applications/UNiFLOW

    So far I have the following script:
    tell application "Finder"
    set myFolder to (quoted form of (POSIX path of (parent of (path to me) as string)))

    do shell script "mkdir -p '/Applications/UniFLOW'"
    do shell script "cd $(dirname $(realpath $0))"
    do shell script "cd $myFolder"
    do shell script "cp -R '/Applications/UNiFLOW'"

    end tell


    Any help would be nice.

    When you say "current working directory", what do you mean ?

    do you mean the current selected folder in Finder, or the current directory in the command shell ?

    The reason I ask is that the AppleScript command "path to me", will return the path to the Applescript itself, or the path to the AppleScript application.

    Regards Mark
