While trying to figure out how to manipulate the filesystem, I found that the ‘fs’ module has a bunch of methods and the same methods with the suffix ‘Sync’.
What is the difference between them? The only difference I can spot (between trying both), is that only the Sync ones work.
Also, secondary question, I found stuff about
exists being deprecated and replaced with
access. Is this still happening? Exists is working for me right now, without a deprecation method.
readFileSync seems to return a
Buffer object with a bunch of bytes in it. What’s the best way to convert that to a string (or just read a string out of the file in the first place)?
EDIT: Found the answer later,
