foldersearch

Search a folder.

foldersearch <foldername>

Remarks

Searches for the folder specified by <foldername>.
If it is found, the system variable "result" is set to 1. Otherwise, "result" is set to zero.

Note

The foldersearch command returns 1 when the <foldername> is a folder, and returns 0 when the <foldername> is a file. For this reason, this command can not be used as checking the existing folder.

Example

foldersearch 'data'
if result=0 messagebox 'Folder not found.' 'error'
name = 'data'
filesearch name
if result=1 then
    foldersearch name
    if result=1 then
        sprintf2 msg '%s is a folder.' name
        messagebox msg ''
    else
        sprintf2 msg '%s is a file.' name
        messagebox msg ''
    endif
else
    sprintf2 msg '%s is not found.' name
    messagebox msg ''
endif
