Description #

Performs an action with a file given the function_number provided. If function_number is…

  • 0 = Archive/unarchive a file. The output will be zero if it has been unarchived. Some other number if archived.

  • 1 = Lock/unlock a file. The output is 0 if unlocked, 1 if it is locked, 2 if you attempted this on an appvar.

  • 2 = Program to appvar and vice versa. A “1” will be output if the operation was a success.

  • 3 = Hide/unhide a file. Outputs 0 if the file is visible, 1 if it is now hidden.

  • 4 = Delete. Just. Deletes a file. Not undoable. Be careful on how you use this.

  • 5 = Create. Creates a zero-sized file with the name you choose. There so you can insert your own stuff in it.

  • 6 = Prog to string. Outputs the entire program file into a string so you can paste it into some other file.

  • 7 = Output stats. Somewhat complicated. It outputs three letters followed by five digits indicating its size. Those three letters will tell you a lot about the file:

    • 1st letter: A= archived, R= in RAM
    • 2nd letter: H= hidden, V= visible
    • 3rd letter: W= writable, L= locked (uneditable)
    • Naturally, archived files are uneditable. To get just the size of the file, do this: expr(sub(det(0,“FILENAME”,7),4,5))


If you omit the function number, the command defaults to the archive/unarchive function. Useful for saving bytes.
