for a chapter on paths in Gambas in the online book at
https://www.gambas-buch.de/doku.php I would also like to describe the
static properties Desktop.ConfigDir, Desktop.DataDir, Desktop.RuntimeDir
and Desktop.CacheDir of the Desktop class (gb.desktop) and give hints
for using the base directories behind these properties.
The Gambas documentation and the explanations in
are not really helpful if you want to decide with sufficient certainty
which special files belong in which directory defined with
Desktop.ConfigDir, Desktop.DataDir, Desktop.RuntimeDir and Desktop.CacheDir.
* Temporary Files
* Shell scripts
* Scripts in other languages
* DB Views, DB Trigger as SQL File
* Pictures and picture collections
* Icon, Favicon
* Configuration files
* Data files such as CSV file, XML file, CSS file, HTML file, music
file, sound file
* MarkDown file
* Help file
* Named Pipe
* Unix socket
Where should the above files be stored?
