(findfile filename)

Find that file.

This function searches your computer for the location of a file. This is important because if you specify the name of a file in your LISP program that doesn't exist, you crash the program. When the file exists, its path and filename are returned; if it doesn't, the function returns nil.


Code Returns
(findfile "sampledwg.dwg") "c:\\icad\\sample\\sampledwg.dwg"
(findfile "junk.$$$") nil
