Congratulations to the :knime: team! The new file handling is a great step forward.

Just wondered when trying out: is there an easy way to retrieve the file name in a platform-independent manner?

The new List Files/Folders node returns a Path column, and I noticed the Path to String and Path to String (Variable) nodes that allow me to convert to String (since e.g. the String Manipulation (Variable) doesn’t seem to handle paths yet, right?).
In earlier versions (i.e. the List Files node), I was using a regular expression on the URL to extract the file name, as it was guaranteed to be everything after the last slash (/). Now with the Path format, it seems I have to go back to considering both slash (/) and backslash (\) again… or is there an easier way that I missed?


Hi @imagejan,

great to hear your feedback, thank you! :slight_smile:

Regarding your question, I think using the Path to String and String Manipulation nodes is the way to go right now. You get the file separator of the running system from the Extract System Properties node.
