file system operations: copy, move, delete, remove, create directory


I’m wondering if there are nodes that can be used to carry out file system operations - such as copying, moving, deleting/removing, and creating directories. It appears there are not and that I would have to create them. Thank you,


Hi Dave,

I’m not aware of any node whose sole purpose is to do file handling. You could probably (mis-)use the external tool node(s) and also the scripting nodes such as java snippet, python, perl.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Bernd. I’m currently implementing my own custom nodes to do this.

Hi, I don't know if someone still follows this topic.

I was wondering if since 2010, there had been some improvments about creating directories, moving files... ?

Still necessary to create its own node?
