    While it is possible to achieve manipulation of text files from within Filemaker the process is currently somewhat laborious.

     

    I would love to see text file tools like open (create) file, delete file, readline, writeline, read file, write file - the sort of functions which most third generation programming languages have for text files. I have been using a plugin to get around this problem but as I understand it, this doesn't currently allow the solution to work under iOS.

     

    In addition, create folder, delete folder, get folder file list and functions of this ilk would be most welcome.
