CWDIR()

Remarks:

  • This command returns the absolute path to the current remote directory. If, for example, the directory name is “images” it will return “/htdocs/images”.
  • As this command does not accept any parameters the brackets are optional.

Return value:

The return value is the current remote directory. If ScriptFTP is not connected to an FTP server it will return nothing.
