Part XI: Extending ColdFusion > Interacting with the Operating System

Chapter 70. Interacting with the Operating System

In This Chapter

Introduction to <cffile> 327

Accessing the Server’s File System 329

Uploading Files 334

Using File Functions 344

Manipulating Folders on the Server with <cfdirectory> 347

Executing Programs on the Server with <cfexecute> 353

Interacting with the System Registry Using <cfregistry> 356

Working with Zip Files 356

ColdFusion gives the developer many tools to interact with the operating system. These tools include functions and tags to manipulate files and directories using <cffile> and <cfdirectory>, execute applications on the server using the <cfexecute> tag, manipulate the system Registry using the <cfregistry> tag, and create and read Zip and JAR files using <cfzip>. This chapter shows how these tags can be used to interact with the file system and operating system. Another tag, <cfNTAuthenticate>, is covered in Chapter 23, “Securing Your Applications,” online.
