How to Use C++ Builder Path Manipulation Routines on Windows

How to Use C++ Builder Path Manipulation Routines on Windows

Hello C++ Developers,

We hope our posts help you like a rapid introduction to programming in C++ and C++ IDE if you’re a beginner, all the way to the most robust, modern, and latest techniques for those more experienced with the language or for those who are perhaps wanting to expand their knowledge with the most up-to-date features, routines, and methodologies.

C++ Builder has a lot of specific methods in its SysUtils library that is included in vcl and fmx libraries. Some of these are grouped as Path Manipulation Routines which allow users to edit, extract, get and set drive name, directory name, file name, and file extensions. These methods are combined in Vcl.FileCtrlSystem.IOUtils,  System.SysUtils libraries. These all methods are easy to use and easy to get or set file path strings in that operating system. These can be used with other component properties like FileName property of OpenDialog, SaveDialog components. We can also check drive, files or directories if they are exist or not in that given path. And we can combine two path strings as new path string.

We have new C++ posts with examples about Path Manipulation Routines that can be used in your Windows applications or your Mobile application, games, or may help to extend your C++ knowledge.

We also post a good selection of very useful C++ posts here on the Embarcadero Blog. To find them just click on the following dynamic search link: https://blogs.embarcadero.com/?s=c%2B%2B
