Make a File Directory

Postby aronb » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:38 pm

Hi,

I have looked around a bit and cannot seem to find out how to make a file directory to store a text file in.

For example, I have a text file (test.txt)
I want to create a directory, then store the file...

I can can create the file and save it, I just can't figure out how to use Ruby or any module to make a directory to store the file in :?:

Maybe I've just been looking to long for the answer :?

Thanks, Aron

Ruby is able to do this via it's Dir module, and it's also possible by using the "Shell Execute" primitive to send a Windows system command.

Here's a module that does it using Ruby, which I prefer because it's easier to define your own action if the folder creation fails. Note that the 'create_folder' routine calls itself recursively with each parent folder name in turn, so it will create all of the folders necessary for the complete path, however deeply they're nested...

Thanks TROG.

I've always used the PRIM FS modules for this deed.

But I got to say, it was one of the messier sections of the schematic [trying to keep connection path clean].

Seems it was always a challenge when transitioning out of FlowStone proper to the exported VST. But I did get
it working as needed. [what I needed was saving a TXT file into a dedicated FOLDER within an Audio Project Folder ... and have it Default to that [chosen] location.

I also used SPROG's technique of Saving parameters in a hidden PreSet Manager. Works nice.

Thanks again for the RUBY way !

Very nice!!!

Thank you very much Trog :D

I figured there was something in Ruby... all my searches came back with using GEMS, which of course we can't really use easily :roll:
