|Pack dpath -- README.md|
An file system traversing utility. Backtracks in the directory structure. Got inspiration from xpath/2.
This repository is under a MIT-license.
This repository can be installed to Swi-Prolog as a pack by
?- directory_files('.',List). List=['file1.txt','file2.txt','file3.pl'].
?- exists_file('file1.txt'). %old way true.
?- file('file1.txt'). %the new way true.
?- file(A). A='file1.txt'; A='file2.txt'; A='file3.pl'
?- dpath:filetype(F.pl). %Swipl doesn't like the dot in 'F.pl' and the Do What I Mean % proposes a proper module in Windows. Linux throws a error F=file3
?- dir('/'/A/B/C/D/E/F). A = usr, B = include, C = 'c++', D = '4.7', E = ext, F = pb_ds
?- file('/'/A/B/'smb.conf'). A = etc, B = samba
wexplorer are modules that interact with Windows File Explorer.
dpath can be used without them, as in Linux command line.
Windows 10 opens up an Explorer window that has dpath.pl selected, when current directory has only one file: the dpath.pl file. If current directory has more prolog files then for each file a new Explorer windows is opened.
?- dpathw:wexplore(filetype(A.pl)). A = dpath .
Windows 10 opens an jpg-image. Next image is shown after user hits spacebar in Swi-Prolog command prompt. All desktops are traversed while searching for images.
Windows 10 shows a slideshow of jpg-images from desktop-folder, every users desktop is searched
?- dpathw:wopen(filetype('c:'/users/_/desktop/A.jpg)), sleep(5), fail;!.
Possible bugs: Using Swi-Prolog dicts might cause problems.
