Take the following file name:
Is there any term for the name "Example", as opposed to "Example.txt"? Either one of those two can be referred to as the "file name", although as Kristina Lopez seemed to suggest in the comments, it can be helpful at times to use "file name" to refer specifically to the part before the extension.
Is there a general word that is specific to that interpretation, and if so, what would it be? This doesn't have anything to do with the folder path of the file, just the name of the file itself.
My research is currently showing that there's likely no standard name for this (although certain entities may have their own phrases that they use). In .NET, for instance, the function
Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension doesn't really use any special terminology, and almost exactly the same phrase is used in various other contexts.
To follow the rule for the
single-word-requests tag, this sample sentence is included:
We need the software to provide two separate options for a file name, one for the <"base name">, and one for the extension.
Semi-standard words are fine, but not anything that's specific to one particular framework, company, etc.
