Dir Function

Fayilete, furchu woy oofote aana baalanta fayillanna furchuwa woy badamino hasaanchu haruma fixoomanno furcho giddo su'ma qolanno.


Dir [(PathName As String [, Attributes As Integer])]

Return value:



PathName: Any string expression that specifies the search path, directory or file. This argument can only be specified the first time that you call the Dir function. If you want, you can enter the path in URL notation.

Attributes:Any integer expression that specifies bitwise file attributes. The Dir function only returns files or directories that match the specified attributes. You can combine several attributes by adding the attribute values:

0 : Rosantino faylla.

16 : Furchu su'ma calla qolanno.

Fayle heedhannota buuxate, gumulo harumanna faylete su'ma eessi. Faylete woy furchu su'mi nookkiro, Dir assishshi zeero-seendille naanni-fikiima ("")qolanno.

To generate a list of all existing files in a specific directory, proceed as follows: The first time you call the Dir function, specify the complete search path for the files, for example, "D:\Files\*.ods". If the path is correct and the search finds at least one file, the Dir function returns the name of the first file that matches the search path. To return additional file names that match the path, call Dir again, but with no arguments.

To return directories only, use the attribute parameter. The same applies if you want to determine the name of a volume (for example, a hard drive partition).
