How to execute any command like "dir" in windows or "ls" is unix using Adobe Air?

The Adobe help is pretty comprehensive on Air file operations with example code.

listing directory contents:

copying directories:

Not possible.

I use Zinc for this kind of thing, it's much more flexible than Air for building desktop applications. It also doesn't require a runtime installer which means you can run it straight off a CD if required. It is not free however. Go to www.multidmedia.com to try it out.
