## Static method (use this):
## GenericDataFileSet$byPath(path=NULL, pattern=NULL, private=FALSE, recursive=FALSE,
##   depth=0L, fileClass=getFileClass(static), ..., .validate=FALSE, verbose=FALSE)

## Don't use the below:
## S3 method for class 'GenericDataFileSet'
byPath(static, path=NULL, pattern=NULL, private=FALSE, recursive=FALSE, depth=0L,
  fileClass=getFileClass(static), ..., .validate=FALSE, verbose=FALSE)

Arguments

path

The directory where to search for files.

pattern

The filename pattern for match files. If NULL, filename extensions corresponding to known subclasses of the abstract GenericDataFile class are search for.

private

If FALSE, files starting with a period are excluded, otherwise not.

recursive

If TRUE, subdirectories are search recursively, otherwise not.

...

Optional arguments passed to the constructor of the static (calling) class.

Value

Returns an GenericDataFileSet object.

Reserved filenames

Note that files with names starting with a period . are not searched for. Such files are considered "private" and have to be included explicitly, if wanted.
