abstraction reporting its parents name

    Dec 05 2006 | 1:37 am
    Does anyone have a method for an abstraction to report the name of its
    parent patch, even if that parent patcher is also an abstraction? I
    have a huge patch with a bunch of dead objects in it, and don't know
    where they all are, and I want to replace them. I need an abstraction I
    can throw in in place of them to report where they are, so I can go in
    the patch and remove them.
    I figured javascript would be the only way to do this, but none of the
    several ways I have tried yet have worked.
