thispatcher object

Hi all,
I’ve added a thispatcher object to output the path to use in some file operations. However when I build it into an application, the “path” command to “thispatcher” just outputs a /
Does anyone know an alternate way to discover the path of a patcher.

***solved with the “absolutepath” object.

when running an application version of a patch, you have to use the max sendapppath message.

“;max sendapppath myreceive” will send the path to the application folder to the [r myreceive] object.

if you’re working with the mxf format within max… this will return the max folder (on a mac /Applications/MaxMSP5). and the path message to thispatcher will not work here neither.
