Incrementing File Number?

SOmewhere in the code something like this exists : when downloading the same file multiple times, incrementing numbers are added to the 'duplicated' files ...

Incrementing File Number?

Well yes its in the code. But they don't have some setting that lets you change the behavior, so far as I know. Thus you'd need to recode it.

Incrementing File Number?
Authored by: _Gekko_ on Sep 06, '07 08:11:03PM

What I was thinking was actually that one would be able to write an applescript (or the like) that would duplicate the file by 'downloading' it from it's own location, p.ex using a browser and assigning the process a 'hot key'. This would give us a fairly easy way of duplicating files with incrementing numbers without messing with te Finder etc. (what has to be redone each time there's an update ...)
