How to copy a file so it creates missing folders in the path

Handy code! Thanks!

For anyone else searching this matter, there's one more quirk to know. On
MacOS 10.7, 8 and ?, the user's Library folder is hidden. So if you want to
see for yourself that preference files were properly created, you have to
reveal that hidden folder. Here's how:

In the Finder, use the menu bar to select Go menu and then hold down the
Option key. This will reveal "Library" on the menu. Once you select and open
that, you'll see subfolders including "Preferences".
