Adding Local Cd And Pwd To CFSFTP

  • submit to reddit
        // I really like working with cfsftp for ColdFusion MX 7 projects, 
// but I discovered that while there was a 'cd' method to change 
// directory on the host, there wasn't one to change the current 
// working directory locally. So here are a few methods I created
// in sftp.cfc to help out with this. 

// cfsftp located at (v1.3.2)

// I'm sending an email to the maintainer for this cfc to see if he
// will patch it in, or if I'm missing some convention that already 
// gives me this ability.

    <cffunction name="getWorkingDir" displayname="getWorkingDir" access="public" output="false" returntype="string" hint="I return the current local working directory.">
        <cfreturn variables.working_dir>

    <cffunction name="setWorkingDir" displayname="getWorkingDir" access="public" output="false" returntype="void" hint="I alter the current local working directory.">
        <cfargument name="new_dir" type="string" required="true">

        <cfset variables.working_dir = expandPath(arguments.new_dir)>
