File Access and modifying

    What objects would I want to use to list files in a directory and possibly move/rename/delete them or can Max even do this?

      AFAIK there are three possibilities:
      1. use folder external, but it will only provide a list of files in a directory
      2. look at shell external (osx only), over at maxobjects.com
      3. or otherwise if you want cross-platform, u could look into writing your own java based tools.

      The [fscopy] external included in the Jasch bundle can do this on Mac OSX machines.

      I'm on a windows machine, so I'm pretty much SOL? :-(

      Have a look in the Examples Overview for jsFileTester which can copy files. It is a javascript so will work on windows too but will be a fair bit slower than a custom external. Hopefully this will help a bit.
