Writing/reading from file

Forums > Swift

I want to find file by name. I can create file but I don't know how to find created when application is running. For example. Application creates "asdf.json" file on the end of running. I want to find "asdf.json" when application starts next time.


This is part of code that saves file.

                        let filename1 = getDocumentsDirectory().appendingPathComponent("asdfX.json")
                        let filename2 = getDocumentsDirectory().appendingPathComponent("asdfY.json")

                        do {
                            try STRING1.write(to: filename1, atomically: true, encoding: String.Encoding.utf8)
                        } catch {


                        do {
                            try STRING2.write(to: filename2, atomically: true, encoding: String.Encoding.utf8)
                        } catch {
