The description of the FileDateTime function is ambiguous as to the type of the returned result. Is it s String or a Date type? The example appears to use implicit conversion - or does it? Ptoye (talk) 10:02, 30 January 2018 (UTC)

This page is missing some vital information: whether the file manipulation functions require full file paths and return path information. I've just had a real pain using Dir to get a file name, but not being able to put the result directly into FileDateTime without also adding a directory string. In addition, the format of the directory information is not specified. By experiment, it seems that both the Windows format "C:\Dir" and the URL Format "///file:c:/Dir" are accepted, but this should be documented properly. There may be other formats (*NIX?) as well.
