cool, could we add a fail-on-error option which is set to true by
default on all the steps, but could be overridden if different
behavior is desired.
We could. But do you really want to ignore failure for any of these?
mainly I would like to reduce the try/catch verbosity ... and yes we
could add this option to every step ... but I think its pragmatic with
respect to working with transient file systems. Prime example would be
for using with cfx:delete; perhaps I would like to delete a file and
its not there and I don't care.
also any thoughts on ?
They're sort of tricky wrt XML.
the main bifurcation is with binary or text ... easy enough to
implement a pipeline doing this for example using optional p:exec step
but mainly the value is with cross platform compatibility with these
