Instance Method

initWithPath:

Initializes a file wrapper instance whose kind is determined by the type of file-system node located by the path.

Declaration

- (id)initWithPath:(NSString *)path;

Parameters

node

Pathname of the file-system node the file wrapper is to represent.

Return Value

File wrapper for node.

Discussion

If node is a directory, this method recursively creates file wrappers for each node within that directory.

Special Considerations

Beginning with OS X v10.6, the preferred method of referring to files is with a file:// URL. Therefore, this method has been deprecated in favor of initWithURL:options:error:.
