Routines summary

  • createDirectoryReturns "true" if the directory was created successfully and "false" otherwise. If returned "false" check the log for a detailed reason on why it failed.

  • directoryExistsReturns "true" if the directory exists and "false" otherwise.

  • fileSHA256ChecksumReturns the SHA256 checksum of the file.
  • fileSizeReturns the size for a given file.
  • findDirectoriesSearches for directories that match the given regex in the specified folder. The routine only searches for directories, not files.
  • findFilesSearches for files that match the given regex in the specified folder. The routine only searches for files, not directories.
  • printInFilePrints in the specified file the provided value. It appends the value to the file. For best results, use absolute paths, since relative paths are resolved starting with the current working directory.

  • readFromTextFileRead the text of the file.
