FileMaker fields into it
– manipulate files and folders on the disk: this includes creation,
deletion, copying, moving and modifying files and folders
Peter Baanen, company president, states that “With this beta release we
added a lot of new features, bringing the total to a whopping 42 functions.
All the functions together provide database developers with an
unprecedented powerful toolbox. And we delivered the long awaited user
guide too. We’re pleased this beta baby is delivered :-)”.

limitless. We invite you to test drive the new functions and see what _you_
