Does a File or Directory exist ?[edit]

Example:

PUBLIC SUB Button1_Click()
   IF Exist("/bin/bash") = TRUE THEN
        Label1.Text="OK i found Bash"
   END IF
   IF Exist("/bin/bash") = FALSE THEN
        Label1.Text="Error Bash is missing"
   END IF
END

Get system's root / home folder ?[edit]

Example :

'Created : Cijo Jose
'E-mail  : info.cijo@gmail.com
'Job ID  : Junior Software Engineer

PUBLIC SUB Button1_Click()

       dir_name as string 
       dir_name = system.root    ' Will return root folder 
       print dir_name
       dir_name = system.home    ' Will return home folder 
       print dir_name

END


When you click on your button your gambas program checks for Bash if Bash is found then Label1 displays "OK i found Bash" if Bash is not found then Label1 displays "Error Bash is missing"
