4.8.3  Internal directories

You can create a directory that isn’t actually on your hard drive but is treated like one from Xcas. You can create such an internal directory with the NewFold command, which takes a variable name as an argument. If you enter

NewFold(MyIntDir)

then there will be a new internal directory named MyIntDir. Internal directories will also be listed with the VARS() command. To actually use this directory, you’ll have to use the SetFold command;

SetFold(MyIntDir)

Finally, we can print out the internal directory that we are in with the GetFold command; entering

GetFold()

will result in

MyIntDir

Afterwards, if this directory is empty, you can delete it with the DelFold command;

DelFold(MyIntDir)
