Re: iterators in copy::

The manual that I am looking at suggests that List iteration
works in:

 In the `from' field of a copy action,
 In the directory field of the copy action,


When I try what you sent, I end up seeing:

COPY /etc/hosts.allow:/etc/hosts.deny:/etc/inetd.conf
 Mode +644
     -7133
 TO dest: /tmp/x
 action: fix
 Size > -1
 IfElapsed=15, ExpireAfter=240
 recurse=0
 xdev = n
 uids = ( 0 )
 gids = ( 0 )
 filters:
 exclude:
 ignore:
 symlink:
 include:
 classes = any
 method = c (time/checksum)
 server = localhost (encrypt=n,verified=n)
 accept the server's public key on trust? n
 purging = n
 Define 
 ElseDefine 
 FailoverClasses 
 Single backup archive


Which suggests that the spliton variable is not set to :...
let's see

Yep. That fixes one error:

COPY /etc/hosts.allow
 Mode +644
     -7133
 TO dest: /tmp/x
 action: fix
 Size > -1
 IfElapsed=15, ExpireAfter=240
 recurse=0
 xdev = n
 uids = ( 0 )
 gids = ( 0 )
 filters:
 exclude:
 ignore:
 symlink:
 include:
 classes = any
 method = c (time/checksum)
 server = localhost (encrypt=n,verified=n)
 accept the server's public key on trust? n
 purging = n
 Define 
 ElseDefine 
 FailoverClasses 
 Single backup archive


But it is still not copying....

This suggests that the admin part is not set up to allow it.

Let's see... I am seeing:

cf:host8: Checksum comparison replaced by ctime: files not regular
cf:host8: /etc/hosts.allow -> /tmp/x
cf:host8: image exists but destination type is silly (file/dir/link doesn't matc
h)
cf:host8: source=/etc/hosts.allow, dest=/tmp/x
Checking copy from localhost:/etc/hosts.deny to /tmp/x
cf:host8: Checksum comparison replaced by ctime: files not regular
cf:host8: /etc/hosts.deny -> /tmp/x
cf:host8: image exists but destination type is silly (file/dir/link doesn't matc
h)
cf:host8: source=/etc/hosts.deny, dest=/tmp/x


which suggests that my error is in replacing the dest with a directory.
let me see...

COPY /etc/hosts.allow
 Mode +644
     -7133
 TO dest: /tmp/x//etc/hosts.allow:/etc/hosts.deny:/etc/inetd.conf
 action: fix
 Size > -1
 IfElapsed=15, ExpireAfter=240
 recurse=0
 xdev = n
 uids = ( 0 )
 gids = ( 0 )
 filters:
 exclude:
 ignore:
 symlink:
 include:
 classes = any
 method = c (time/checksum)
 server = localhost (encrypt=n,verified=n)
 accept the server's public key on trust? n
 purging = n
 Define 
 ElseDefine 
 FailoverClasses 
 Single backup archive


Nope... that did not work.

So... A) you can not copy to a directory
and   B) you can not iterate over a list in the
         destination...


And... If you put it in the dir section it still failes....

Yes, I agree with you. Having iterate work in the destination field
     would be nice.

However. wait a second... I have a directory that I am copying.

any::
     $(mastermlndir)            dest=$(mlndir)
                                  r=inf
                                  mode=755
                                  type=checksum
                                  exclude=*.lst
                                  exclude=*~
                                  exclude=#*
                                  server=$(policyhost)
                                  trustkey=true


And this works.

    So if dir matches dir, it will work.

 I wonder if there is a way to use a module to do it...
