Fetch seems to see local files that aren't there (2 posts)

    Into a local TempFiles folder I put one file. Both Fetch and Finder can see that file and return true to an 'exists' test.

    However, it seems that Fetch <i>also returns true</i> to an 'exists' test for a file that is <i>not</i> in that folder.

    Could this be a bug? Perhaps 'exists' testing for a local file is out of Fetch's scope?

    From the Event Log:

    tell application "Finder"
    exists file "MBProHD:Users:gil:Gil's Stuff:Projects:MCCV:Calendar:AppleScripts:TempFiles:GilTEST.htm"
    --> true
    exists file "MBProHD:Users:gil:Gil's Stuff:Projects:MCCV:Calendar:AppleScripts:TempFiles:GilTEST1.htm"
    --> false
    end tell

    tell application "Fetch"
    exists file "MBProHD:Users:gil:Gil's Stuff:Projects:MCCV:Calendar:AppleScripts:TempFiles:GilTEST.htm"
    --> true
    exists file "MBProHD:Users:gil:Gil's Stuff:Projects:MCCV:Calendar:AppleScripts:TempFiles:GilTEST1.htm"
    --> true
    end tell

    I'd agree that testing for the existence of local files is out of Fetch's scope, and I'd recommend using the Finder for that.

    Thanks,
