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.
    Thanks, barry
