|Description|| This unit contains the predefined subprograms that deal with directories. You can use these subprograms to list the contents of directories, create directories, change directories and return the current directory.|
All routines in the Dir module are exported qualified (and thus must be prefaced with "Dir.").
|Details||Path names in Turing can be expressed using either forward slashes or backslashes. For example, Dir.Change ("d:\\turing files\\assignment 3") or Dir.Change ("d:/turing files/assignment 3") are both legal. Note that backslashes must be doubled in string literals. The "." directory represent the current directory (as in Dir.Open (".")), and the ".." directory represents the parent directory. For example, if the current execution directory is "d:/turing files/assignment 3", then Dir.Change ("..") changes the current execution directory to "d:/turing files".|
