coll and write folder


    Sep 03 2006 | 10:33 pm
    Does anyone know how to decide in witch folder coll should save the file when received a write 'filename' message, so that you can save stuff in a folder without having to use the save as dialogue... ?
    cheers b.

      Just combine the filepath with the filename to one complete filename: [sprintf %s%s]-[tosymbol]-[prepend write]-[coll]. The tosymbol will take care of whitespace in the path...

      Note that sprintf has a "symout" argument which will eliminate the need for tosymbol.

      Is there a complete summary available for manipulating strings and symbols in max? For me it's still not completely clear when quotes are automatically added to or removed from strings, when something is a symbol and when it is a list, what tosymbol and fromsymbol do exactly, when the word 'symbol' is automatically prepended and how the %s in sprintf behaves with different types of input.
      If there is no such guide maybe I'll try to put something together myself some time.
