Display listings of files
<cFileMask> File mask to include in the function return. It could contain path and standard wildcard characters as supported by your OS (like * and ?). If <cFileMask> contains no path, then SET DEFAULT path is used to display files in the mask.
If no <cFileMask> is given, __Dir() display information about all *.dbf in the SET DEFAULT path, this information contain: file name, number of records, last update date and the size of each file.
If <cFileMask> is given, __Dir() list all files that match the mask with the following details: Name, Extension, Size, Date.
DIR command is preprocessed into __Dir() function during compile time.
__Dir() is a compatibility function, it is superseded by DIRECTORY() which returns all the information in a multidimensional array.
