Nasal IO - no such file or directory.

I'm trying to use Nasal IO for a side project:

Code: Select all
var cyclePath = getprop("/sim/fg-home") ~ "/Export/AloftWx/cycle-2018121906.grib2";
   var cycleFile =, "wb+"); # open in write mode
http.load("").done(func(r) io.write(cycleFile, r.response));

In this case, I get "No such file or directory". Isn't, "wb+"); meant to open it in write mode? How can I create a new file?

does that "AloftWx" directory exist? if no, you need to create it before attempting to create the file... unless there's an existing call i don't know about (very likely) that will create the full path for you as well as the file...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
