path parse for default

Convert a path into structured data.

Signature

> path parse --columns --extension

Parameters

  • --columns {table}: Optionally operate by column path
  • --extension {string}: Manually supply the extension (without the dot)

Notes

Each path is split into a table with 'parent', 'stem' and 'extension' fields.
On Windows, an extra 'prefix' column is added.

Examples

Parse a path

> '/home/viking/spam.txt' | path parse

Replace a complex extension

> '/home/viking/spam.tar.gz' | path parse -e tar.gz | upsert extension { 'txt' }

Ignore the extension

> '/etc/conf.d' | path parse -e ''

Parse all paths under the 'name' column

> ls | path parse -c [ name ]
