• error deleting file on time event

    From Ragnarok@VERT/DOCKSUD to DOVE-Net.Sync_JavaScript on Sun Jan 10 20:59:46 2021
    I continue working on my mhsgateway.

    https://github.com/ftoledo/mhsgateway

    I found a weird problem at my mhsgate.js file. when process message files.

    If I run my script with jsexec, both file_remove() and fp.remove() work
    fine and the file is deleted.

    But, when I run the script as Timed Event, both functions return FALSE
    with error 13 (permissions denied)

    Both jsexec and sbbs run as root every time.

    I add fp.debug = true to see if the file was open, but no, the file is
    closed before doing the remove.
    I see strange is that fp.is_open returns undefined

    Did this happen to someone?

    Perhaps the file is still open? Or it could be permissions. I think Linux normally allows the deletion of an open file.

    Both jsexec and sbbs run as root every time.

    It shouldn't. BinkIt is an example of a timed event that is able to remove files, no problem. There are many others.
