Workflow

more fun with URI, URL and File Paths - work with the new Path variable format to list and move/copy files

use the (new) Path variable format to adress (local) files and handle them. The key is to get a local path and work with taht and if you try to handle files convert a string to a Path file and (mostly) use custom strings. Some nodes are not fully ready to work consitantly with the Path variables, some would not work with the KNIME protocol.
