This class provides a convenient way of working with paths. It supports the common path formats:

  • directory1/directory2/filename.extension
  • directory1\directory2\filename.extension

Constructor

new(path:String)

Creates a new Path instance by parsing path.

Path information can be retrieved by accessing the dir, file and ext properties.

Variables

backslash:Bool

True if the last directory separator is a backslash, false otherwise.

dir:String

The directory.

This is the leading part of the path that is not part of the file name and the extension.

Does not end with a / or \ separator.

If the path has no directory, the value is null.

ext:String

The file extension.

It is separated from the file name by a dot. This dot is not part of the extension.

If the path has no extension, the value is null.

file:String

The file name.

This is the part of the part between the directory and the extension.

If there is no file name, e.g. for ".htaccess" or "/dir/", the value is the empty String "".

Static methods

staticdirectory(path:String):String

Returns the directory of path.

If the directory is null, the empty String "" is returned.

If path is null, the result is unspecified.

staticnormalize(path:String):String

Normalize a given path (e.g. make '/usr/local/../lib' to '/usr/lib').

Also replaces backslashes \ with slashes / and afterwards turns multiple slashes into a single one.

If path is null, the result is unspecified.
