Case sensitive file name support

Case sensitive file name support

DaleAmon
New member | Level 2

Most Unix systems allow case sensitive file names. MyFile and myfile are not the same object. This causes troublesome collisions when copying files, particularly if the names are of directories which contain softlinks which depend on the specific pathname. Current behavior is to rename the file or directory to a different name.  That can cause problems.
