Many devices in the game interact with virtual filesystems that share a lot of similarities with real-world computer systems.
These devices enable the sharing of and interaction with data present in the Sindome world, so knowing a few basics can go a long way.
File paths are tree data structures, like folders contained in folders not at all unlike regular computer directories.
A 'full file path' looks like this: 1:/some_folder/nlm.txt
And it can be broken down like this: 1: - This is the filesystem we're using, like a drive. It starts at 1. It is safe to drop this usually, as most file-systems will assume you want to work with the first filesystem. Though, this can be useful when working with multiple filesystems.
/some_folder/ - This is a path, specifically a directory named 'some_folder' located at the root filesystem.
nlm.txt - This is a file. Files always end with a .. The type of file and what it can be used with is determined by the extension.
In shorthand, it is possible to also reference files quickly like: /nlm.txt - This says we want to target nlm.txt on the root folder.
