Flatten a folder's structure via AppleScript
Authored by: abderrahman on May 12, '09 07:50:26AM

Doesn't work for me (on 10.5.6 with my Power G4 quicksilver 933 Mhz).

Flatten a folder's structure via AppleScript

Doesn't work for me either, on 10.5.6. When I was trying to run it from Script Editor, it was trying (and failing) to operate on files that were in the base folder and not in subfolders, thinking they were subfolders. Then, when I got rid of those files, it just said something about not being able to operate on {}. And when I ran it from the script menu, it simply did nothing, not even an error message.

It's a shame too, because I would really love something like this.

Very weird -- I tested on 10.5.6 on my Mac Pro, and it ran fine. I just tested it again, using the text above copied and pasted into Script Editor on my MacBook Pro (also 10.5.6), and it seemed to work fine.

-rob.
