Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

This page contains documentation for the os.path namespace in Nasal. This namespace implements tools (from SGPath) for manipulating file paths. Everything in the geo namespace is sourced from flightgear/src/Scripting/NasalSGPath.cxx

Tip  Copy & paste the examples into your Nasal Console and execute them to see what they do.
Note  Everything here was added to FlightGear 3.0.
