Node.js | path.delimiter Property
  • Last Updated : 15 Apr, 2020

The path.delimiter property is an inbuilt application programming interface of the path module which is used to get platform-specific path delimiter.

Syntax:

path.delimiter;

Return Value: This property returns a string that represents platform specific path delimiter. The returned value is : for POSIX and ; for Windows.

Below examples illustrate the use of path.delimiter in Node.js:

Example 1:






// Node.js program to demonstrate the   
// path.delimiter property
  
// Allocating path module
const path = require('path');
  
// Printing path.delimiter value
console.log(path.delimiter);

Output:

;

Example 2:




// Node.js program to demonstrate the   
// path.delimiter property
  
// Allocating path module
const path = require('path');
  
// Allocating process module
const process = require('process');
   
// Printing path.delimiter value
var delimiter = path.delimiter;
   
console.log(process.env.PATH);
console.log(process.env.PATH.split(path.delimiter));

Output:

Files\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;
C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;
C:\Windows\System32\OpenSSH\;D:\programfiles\Git\cmd;
D:\programfiles\Cmake\bin;
C:\Program

C:\Users\gekcho\AppData\Roaming\npm
[ 'C:\\wamp64\\bin\\php\\php7.3.1\\ext\\ImageMagick',

  'C:\\Windows\\system32',
  'C:\\Windows',
  'C:\\Windows\\System32\\Wbem',

  'D:\\programfiles\\Cmake\\bin',
  'C:\\Program Files\\nodejs\\',
