dirname

gets directory from filenames

Calling Sequence

dirs = dirname(files[, flag [,flagexpand]])

Arguments

files

a string matrix containing file paths

flag

optional boolean, used to convert the given path(s) for the current operating system. Default value is true (%t).

flagexpand

optional boolean, used to expand leading variables in paths. Only used with flag argument. Default value is true (%t).

dirs

string matrices

Description

dirname returns the directory paths of the file entries given in files.

If flag is true the paths are first converted for the current operating system (for example, C:/Tmp/folder' will be converted on Windows to 'C:\Tmp\folder').

If flagexpand is true, leading path variables (home, SCI, SCIHOME, ...) are expanded for the current operating system (for example, 'home\tmp' will be converted on GNU/Linux to 'home/<user>/tmp', where <user> is the current user logged on).

See more details on flag and flagexpand in pathconvert section.

Examples

dirs=dirname('/tmp/folder/poo')
dirs=dirname('/tmp/folder/')
dirs=dirname('/')

dirs=dirname('C:\tmp\folder\poo')
dirs=dirname('C:\tmp\folder\')
dirs=dirname('C:\')

dirs=dirname(['SCI/etc/scilab.start', 'SCI/etc/scilab.quit'])
