Copy files between FileSystems

Description

Copy files between FileSystems

Usage

copy_files(from, to, chunk_size = 1024L * 1024L)

Arguments

from

A string path to a local directory or file, a URI, or a SubTreeFileSystem. Files will be copied recursively from this path.

to

A string path to a local directory or file, a URI, or a SubTreeFileSystem. Directories will be created as necessary

chunk_size

The maximum size of block to read before flushing to the destination file. A larger chunk_size will use more memory while copying but may help accommodate high latency FileSystems.

Value

Nothing: called for side effects in the file system

Examples

## Not run: 
# Copy an S3 bucket's files to a local directory:
copy_files("s3://your-bucket-name", "local-directory")
# Using a FileSystem object
copy_files(s3_bucket("your-bucket-name"), "local-directory")
# Or go the other way, from local to S3
copy_files("local-directory", s3_bucket("your-bucket-name"))

## End(Not run)
