How to copy a file to a non existing directory?

Is there a way to copy a file to a directory that does not exist ? If I
try

require 'fileutils'

FileUtils.cp('c:/trash.txt', 'c:/mart/martin.txt')

I get the following message :

c:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:1246:in `initialize': No such file or
director
y - c:/mart/martin.txt (Errno::ENOENT)

Hi

You'll need to create the directory first with

FileUtils.mkdir('c:/mart')

Is there a way to copy a file to a directory that does not exist ? If I
try

require 'fileutils'

FileUtils.mkdir_p(File.dirname('c:/mart/martin.txt'))
