I need to convert back and forth between max style pathnames and real Unix paths.
This has always been an incredible pain in the behind.
I searched the archives but the MXJ solution I found is a bit above my head/immediately froze Max.
Is there an easier way to convert between the 2 styles without resorting to MXJ?
UNIX (the shell object) doesn't like the G5: (diskname) part nor spaces in pathnames. Escaping with doesn't seem to work.
All in all, another afternoon lost.
Yes, I tried absolutepath/relativepath etc.
It would be great if there was no difference for the user between UNIX and Max paths
Also, relative and absolute paths in Max are rather messy.
