Public method Static member Dir Overloaded. Returns a string representing the name of a file, directory, or folder that matches a specified pattern or file attribute, or the volume label of a drive. The My.Computer.FileSystem Object gives you better productivity and performance in file I/O operations than the Dir function. See My.Computer.FileSystem.GetDirectoryInfo Method for more information.
Public method Static member EOF Returns a Boolean value True when the end of a file opened for Random or sequential Input has been reached.
Public method Equals Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Static member FileAttr Returns an enumeration representing the file mode for files opened using the FileOpen function. The My.Computer.FileSystem Object gives you better productivity and performance in file I/O operations than the FileAttr function. See My.Computer.FileSystem.GetFileInfo Method for more information.
Public method Static member FileClose Concludes input/output (I/O) to a file opened using the FileOpen function. My gives you better productivity and performance in file I/O operations. See My.Computer.FileSystem Object for more information.

Public method Static member FileWidth Assigns an output line width to a file opened by using the FileOpen function.
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Static member FreeFile Returns an Integer value that represents the next file number available for use by the FileOpen function.
Public method Static member GetAttr Returns a FileAttribute value that represents the attributes of a file, directory, or folder. The My feature gives you better productivity and performance in file I/O operations than FileAttribute. For more information, see My.Computer.FileSystem Object.
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Static member Input Overloaded. Reads data from an open sequential file and assigns the data to variables.
