Crash during file save - Coin - Mar 29, 2005 02:37 PM

Crash while generating temporarly files

NSString *path = [@"~/Desktop/.temp" stringByExpandingTildeInPath];
    path = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@/%@", path, [[source objectAtIndex:selected] name]];
    [tempData writeToFile:path atomically:NO];

the logged path is /Users/admin/Desktop/.temp/animal.rtf

i also have tried this

NSString *path = [@"~/Desktop/.temp" stringByExpandingTildeInPath];
    path = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"\"%@/%@\"", path, [[source objectAtIndex:selected] name]];
    [tempData writeToFile:path atomically:NO];

i know that the NSData is fine because this code worked earlier, then i messed with the path stuff and it stopped working

when i go and look in .temp there is nothing in it

Did you run a fileExistsAtPath: to verify that it is correctly finding the directory.

Try something of this nature, it sounds like the path isnt working for you.

NSFileManager *manager = [NSFileManager defaultManager];
if(![manager fileExistsAtPath: path])

This should help you understand what is failing a little better

Crash info (backtrace, failed assertions, and the like) are very useful too. Are you sure that you have no null pointers lying around? Also, NSLog(path) is bad practice - what if you have a path with a % symbol in it? You should NSLog(@"%@",path) instead.
