CHDIR

Description

The CHDIR function allows the current working directory, as seen by the process environment, to be changed. The function usually takes the form:

CHDIR(expression)

Where the expression should evaluate to a valid path name within the file system. The function returns a Boolean TRUE result if the CHDIR succeeded and a Boolean FALSE result if it failed, as illustrated by the results of the code below:

0001     IF CHDIR ("C:\jBASE\CurrentVersion\src") THEN
0002         CRT "jBASE development system INSTALLED"
0003     END
0004     ELSE
0005         CRT "NON EXISTENT DIRECTORY, SORRY"
0006     END
