Folders are shorthands for directory names. They are used in J components such as Find in Files, or implicitly such as the line

   load 'debug/dissect'

which looks in the addons folder.

A line in the Folders configuration page specifies a folder. The first word is the name of the folder, and the rest is the name of the directory the name stands for. The directory may contain spaces; however, multiple spaces are replaced by a single space.

Two system nouns list the folder names and values. SystemFolders_j_contain names used by system components; UserFolders_j_ contain names referred to only by the user. Names that begin with an uppercase letter are user folders; names beginning with a lowercase letter are system folders.
