The FILE tag offers a developer access to the file system. It allows such operations as DELETE, COPY, RENAME, MOVE, LIST directory, CREATE DIRectory, and UPLOAD. All operations operate on absolute paths.

For a secure version of file access use WRITEFILE which only allows relative paths, and not '..' (parent directory) access.
