This started out as a package for file and string manipulation. Since then, the fs file manipulation package and the `strex string manipulation package emerged, offering functionality previously given by this package (but slightly better). Those packages have hence almost pushed ‘filesstrings’ into extinction. However, it still has a small number of unique, handy file manipulation functions which can be seen in the vignette. One example is a function to remove spaces from all file names in a directory.
