The contents of a file folder (directory) can be read by opening them using the file module. This can be used to retrieve a list of files that is present in a specific folder. You can apply a file filter to retrieve a result set of just a specific file extension.
Folders can also be created, renamed and deleted. Only empty folders containing no files can be deleted.
As of EDGELIB 2.50 developers can set and retrieve the current working directory to open and write files more easily using relative paths, even if the operating system only supports absolute paths.
