dfuplus dstname and file scope

Post questions or comments on how best to manage your big data problem

Greetings,
It seems that the dstname parameter of dfuplus for spray actions ignores the "~" prefix to denote scope. For instance dstname="~foo::test" and dstname="foo::test" both send the data to the "test" folder of the "foo" scope... where I would expect the 2nd case to end up in "thor::foo::test" ( where "thor" is the default scope name ).
Thoughts?
Thanks.

You are correct. DFUplus, the Stndard Library spray functions, and the ECL Watch spray pages all create the name exactly as you specify and do not prepend the default scope name, ever.

The only place where a filename ever gets the default scope name automatically prepended if the leading tilde is missing is in ECL code (specifically, OUTPUT and BUILD).

HTH,
