# FILE-NAME

A file name or an absolute path to a file. If the string contains special characters (see MaxL Syntax Notes), it must be enclosed in single or double quotation marks. Double quotation marks allows variable expansion; single quotation marks does not. If the file path contains a backslash ( \ ), it must be preceded with another backslash ( \\ ) to be interpreted correctly by the MaxL Shell.

Type

string (see MaxL Syntax Notes)

Example

• file01

• 'D:\\filename'

• "\$ARBORPATH/errors.txt"

• "\$ARBORPATH\\app\\sample\\basic\\calcdat.txt" (double quotation marks to expand the variable)

• '/homes/fiona/scriptfile.msh' (UNIX file path)
