Renameing a file.

Renameing a file.

Renameing a file.

Is there a command to rename a file in qbasic?
I know how to use the shell command, and I know how to read from a file a write to another file then delete the old file, but I just wondered if you could just rename a file with qbasic.

RE: Renameing a file.

I'm not sure about this, but I think there's a NAME command. I know this because I tried to use name$ for a variable once, and it wouldn't let me.

Ok I just looked and its prototype is:
NAME oldfilename AS newfilename

Hope this helps :)
