FileNameSplit

FileNameSplit["name"]

splits a file name into a list of parts.

Details and Options

  • FileNameSplit by default uses pathname separators and other conventions suitable for your operating system.
  • FileNameSplit[,OperatingSystem->"os"] uses the conventions of the specified operating system. Possible choices are "Windows", "MacOSX", and "Unix".
  • Absolute file names that begin with a pathname separator yield a list of parts that starts with "".
  • Under Windows, the drive or share name is treated as the first part of the file name.
  • FileNameSplit just operates on names of files; it does not actually search for the file specified.
  • FileNameSplit[File["name"]] is also supported.
  • FileNameSplit[URL["file:///path"]] converts a file-based URL to a list of parts.
