      It depends what your eventual destination (use) is.

      thanks guys! i was trying to give [folder] object the folder enclosed in quotation marks ( because this is what i've first understood from the [folder] help ). But then i realized that [folder] just wants the path NOT included in quotation marks.
      so this is the solution for getting the parent path of a given file dropped on [live.drop]

      nope...folder accepts both styles ( with and without quotations marks ) i guess quotation marks are used when there is some space character in the path name. the thing is that [folder] seems kind of problems with path without space. But when the path has some space sometimes [folder] works correctly and sometimes not....mmmhhh ( buggity-bug ? )

      another update...seems that [folder] does not recognize some file types. i'm sure about .exe and .dll files. they are not recognized. Not to bad. I was only doin' some experiment. i think nobody will use .exe or .dll files in max patches. but in case somebody want to do it.. well [folder] won't recognize those file types
