dear Andreas

make my question short.
I have a string object 'name' and it is a name of an exsiting folder
is there a method that uses 'name'(a str object) as an argument to call upon 
this folder?

Please take the advice and learn Python. Such logic should be implemented
in Python and *not* in DTML. DTML/ZPT are for presentation *only*, not for
implementing business logic.
