value

A character representation of the path, that needs to be set as current directory. Use Amiga DOS syntax as specified in the details

Details

By default the disk's root is stored as the current directory for a new amigaDisk object. With this method, the current directory can be retrieved or changed.

For this purpose the path should be specified conform Amiga DOS syntax. Use the disk's name or "DF0" followed by a colon in order to refer to the disk's root. Subdirectories are separated by forward slashes ("/"). Colons and forward slashes are not allowed in file and directory names. Both upper and lowercase letters are allowed in file and directory names. The case is ignored when identifying files however. This packages will NOT follow the Amiga's full search path (https://wiki.amigaos.net/wiki/AmigaOS_Manual:_AmigaDOS_Working_With_AmigaDOS#Search_Path).

Value

Returns a character representation of the current directory.

## change the current dir:
current.adf.dir(adf.example) <- "DF0:this/is/a/deep/path"

## confirm that it has changed:
