Display drive letter or folder path of patch..?

November 30, 2012 | 1:29 pm

Is there any object which can display the drive letter of the folder or path that the Max patch is running from? Right now I’m using (dialogue Please enter the drive name) which obviously is a bit crap.

im not sure if this is the right answer ,but if you send a (path) message to [thispatcher] it will return the path you are on

EDIT: Sorry, the [absoultepath] object.

EDIT (again): The [thispatcher] method above is probably better!
