Is there a way to extract the file name from the file full path (part of a file path) without the hassle of manipulating string?
The equivalent in Java would be:
File f = new File ("C:/some_dir/a")
f.getName() //output a
f.getFullAbsolutePath() //output c:/some_dir/a
basename("C:/some_dir/a") >  "a" dirname("C:/some_dir/a") > "C:/some_dir"
