Another object that can be used to minimize disk usage in EASA is a FILE MANAGEMENT object. A FILE MANAGEMENT is a sibling to a PROCESS. The following file management actions can be performed with this object:
|Type:||Select type of file action (Compress, Copy, Delete, Move, Uncompress)|
|Original File or Folder:||File or folder on which to perform action.
'Compress'→Name of compressed archive file.
'Uncompress'→Name of folder containing uncompressed files.
|New File or Folder:||New file or folder to be destination of actions: Copy, Move, Compress, Uncompress|
|Do if:||Logical expression, if TRUE then perform action, if FALSE then do NOT perform action|
Note: Files or folders compressed using the 'Compress' function of FILE MANAGEMENT are stored in a .zip format. It is the decision of the author whether or not to include a .zip file extension for the compressed files, so that they may be opened outside of EASA.
