how to register a folder and subfolder into filepath?


    May 23 2010 | 4:58 pm
    Dear advanced users,
    by the following method, which is included in the maxhelp, I cannot add the subfolders of a folder.
    is there any possibility to also add the subfolders of the selected folder?

      But it works strangely, when there are more than one subfolder.
      Is there any other suggestions?
      thanks,

      Strangely? It works as expected. You just need to change the depth field in the config file:
      1. open loader_config.txt
      2. change depth, 0; to depth, 1; or 2; or 3;, etc.
      3. with verbose on (i.e. verbose, 1;), it will print all paths added to the temporary search path in the Max window.

      Dear Zachary,
      See the attached file.
      Main_Patch-LOADER.maxpat open five instances of the Main_Patch.maxpat.
      The number of instances will be decided by the total number of subfolders.

      Hi ptko,
      You're right, there was a mistake in there. Here's the corrected version. Should work as desired now.

      hi,
      I have decided use the following code.
      It is a simplified code of yours.
