ToFileName

As of Mathematica 7, ToFileName has been superseded by FileNameJoin.
ToFileName["directory", "name"]
assembles a full file name from a directory name and a file name.
ToFileName[{dir1, dir2, ...}, name]
assembles a full file name from a hierarchy of directory names.
ToFileName[{dir1, dir2, ...}]
assembles a single directory name from a hierarchy of directory names.
  • ToFileName works differently on different computer systems.
  • ToFileName just creates a file name; it does not actually search for the file specified.
  • ToFileName["", "name"] gives "name".
  • ToFileName uses the current setting for $PathnameSeparator to separate elements of the file name.
