Re: [Gimp-developer] Copying an .xcf file

Thanks for the feedback, Liam!

That’s the general gist of what I ended up doing. The C program just runs a
batch script in the parent directory.

Thanks again for the insight,

Since I have to create multiple files for new portraits, I decided to
automate this process by adding a shell command to my machine using

It's much better top use a scripting language for something like this.

wait for an EOF character in order to indicate when to stop reading
from the file.
There's no such thing as an EOF character in C; instead, getc() will
return -1; note that this does not fit into an unsigned char, so getc
returns an int.

Essentially, I am trying to copy a template .xcf file and rename it.
On a Unix/Linux system, the shell command,
  cp "$template" `basename "$template" .xcf`-2.xcf
will rename $template. One line, no getc or EOF.

Or you could write a GIMP plugin in Python.
