Calling Sequence

Rename(old, new, opt1)

Parameters

-

string; source filename

new

-

string; destination filename

opt1

(optional) name; argument

Description

• 

The Rename(old, new) command moves the file old to the new location new.

• 

The Rename function does not return anything.

• 

The optional argument force controls Rename's behavior when a file named new exists.  If force=false then an error is raised and the renaming does not occur.  This is the default behavior.  If force=true then the file is replaced by the renaming.

• 

If either new or old refers to an open file, it is automatically closed before the move.

• 

If the user does not have permission to perform the operation, an exception is raised.
