DescriptionQueries list of paths in folder.
This function is recursive and will look in all subfolders. Due to very large file systems you can pass a timeout. Default is 5 seconds. FileMaker will not respond to user input while the query runs.
The list of names is separated by new line character.
This function needs a native path. Please use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath function in order to convert a FileMaker style path to a native path.
