Use the defaultFolder to perform file manipulations on files in the same folder without having to include the full path.
If you specify a file without giving its full path, LiveCode looks for the file in the defaultFolder. If you specify a relative path, the defaultFolder is prepended to it to create the full path.
You cannot delete the current defaultFolder.
The folderPath is specified using Unix conventions, even on Mac OS and Windows systems. The names of folders are separated with a "/" character, and absolute paths (starting with a disk or partition name) must begin with a "/" character.
