Description

Searches a specified directory path for a file. The search always starts with the current directory of the current drive.

FileSearch searches through the current directory and the directories passed in the DirList parameter for a file named Name.

If FileSearch locates a file matching the Name parameter, it returns a string specifying a path name for that file. If no matching file exists, FileSearch returns an empty string.

Note: DirList is a list of path names delimited by semicolons on Windows, or colons on MacOS.
