Copy a directory (and its contents) recursively. The best way to use this would be to extend the directory helper because it uses the directory_map method. Or, you could load the directory helper and whatever helper this function would be in.

<?php
/**
 * Copy a whole Directory
 *
 * Copy a directory recrusively ( all file and directories inside it )
 *
 * @access    public
 * @param    string    path to source dir
 * @param    string    path to destination dir
 * @return    array
 */    
if(!function_exists('directory_copy'))
{
    function directory_copy($srcdir, $dstdir)
    {
        //preparing the paths
        $srcdir=rtrim($srcdir,'/');
        $dstdir=rtrim($dstdir,'/');

        //creating the destination directory
        if(!is_dir($dstdir))mkdir($dstdir, 0777, true);
        
        //Mapping the directory
        $dir_map=directory_map($srcdir);

        foreach($dir_map as $object_key=>$object_value)
        {
            if(is_numeric($object_key))
                copy($srcdir.'/'.$object_value,$dstdir.'/'.$object_value);//This is a File not a directory
            else
                directory_copy($srcdir.'/'.$object_key,$dstdir.'/'.$object_key);//this is a directory
        }
    }
}
