file.create issue

PIKAL Petr
Hi

Can anybody explain why one character makes such a difference?

> file.create("com1.txt")
[1] FALSE
Warning message:
In file.create("com1.txt") :
  cannot create file 'com1.txt', reason 'No such file or directory'
> file.create("con1.txt")
[1] TRUE
>

It took me quite effort to find out that "com1.txt" is not valid for naming a file.

BTW I am on Windows, if it matters.

Best regards
Petr

Hi Petr,

I think it does matter, because it seems there is no problem on Mac OS
10.9.5.
Now, don't ask me why, I have no idea!

Re: file.create issue

Fox, John
In reply to this post by PIKAL Petr
Dear Petr,

This is a Windows OS issue, not peculiar to R. There are some reserved names that can't be used for files, including COM1 (the first serial port). Other examples include LPT1 and AUX. Because file names in windows are case-insensitive "com1.txt" also causes problems.

I hope this helps,
 John

Re: file.create issue

PIKAL Petr
Thank you , John.

As I wanted to use com as abbreviated value for comments it gave me hard time, especially when the name was not only com1 but "com1.txt".

Best regards

The list of illegal file names on Windows 7 includes "aux", "prn",
"lpt[1-9]", "com[1-9]", and "con",
with or without a 'dot file extension' and in any directory.  I think there
used to be be other illegal ones,
like "nul", "pc$mouse" and "clock".
