Hello again!

I was wondering if there is a way in Lua to open a directory/folder? Particularly the Logs folder.

I've been reading around io and os, but can't seem to figure it out.

http://www.gammon.com.au/scripts/doc.php?general=lua_os

I'm thinking there might be a way using os.execute?

This may also be a nice little feature to add into MUSHclient itself in the Log Session.. box, like an Open Logs Folder button, or Open directory.

Like open up the actual folder, outside of MUSHclient.

Something like this?


os.execute ("explorer " .. GetInfo (58) )
