Description

Changes the name of an external file.

The external file associated with F is renamed Newname. Further operations on F operate on the external file with the new name.

F is a variable of any file type. Newname is a string-type expression or an expression of type PChar if the extended syntax is enabled.

Note: {$I+} handles run-time errors using exceptions. When using {$I-}, use IOResult to check for I/O errors.
