Instance Method

fileManager(_:shouldProceedAfterError:linkingItemAt:to:)

Asks the delegate if the operation should continue after an error occurs while linking to the item at the specified URL.

Declaration

optional func fileManager(_ fileManager: FileManager, shouldProceedAfterError error: Error, linkingItemAt srcURL: URL, to dstURL: URL) -> Bool

Parameters

fileManager

The file manager object that attempted to create the link.

error

The error that occurred during the link attempt.

srcURL

The URL of the attempted link location.

dstURL

The URL of the file or directory that was the destination of the hard link.

Return Value

true if the operation should proceed or false if it should be aborted. If you do not implement this method, the file manager assumes a response of false.

Discussion

The file manager calls this method when there is a problem creating a hard link to the item at the specified location. If you return true, the file manager continues creating any other links associated with the current operation and ignores the error.

This method performs the same task as the fileManager(_:shouldProceedAfterError:linkingItemAtPath:toPath:) method and is preferred over that method in macOS 10.6 and later.
