Dir.CurrentPart of Dir module

Syntax   Dir.Current : string

Description   Dir.Current returns the full path name of the current execution directory. This is the equivalent of doing a pwd in UNIX.

Details   If the Dir.Current call fails, then Error.Last will return a non-zero value indicating the reason for the failure. Error.LastMsg will return a string which contains the textual version of the error.

Example   This program changes to the directory called /usr/west and then lists the current directory.

        Dir.Change ("/usr/west")
        if Error.Last = eNoError  then
            put "Directory changed"
            put "Did not change the directory."
            put "Error: ", Error.LastMsg
        end if
        put "The current execution directory is ", Dir.Current
Example   An example demonstrating the use of several of the Dir subprograms is available. In this example, a directory is created, a file is written to the directory, an attempt is made to delete the directory, the file is deleted, and then the directory is deleted.

This example demonstrates the use of Dir.Change, Dir.Current, Dir.Create, and Dir.Delete.

Status   Exported qualified.

This means that you can only call the function by calling Dir.Current, not by calling Current.
