PATH doesn't include the folder where the patch is .....? what ?


    Mar 15 2011 | 8:22 pm
    hello, here: https://cycling74.com/docs/max5/vignettes/core/search_path.html I can read the path include the folder of the last loaded patch. so I guess if I open an help patch, the patch's path is removed from the path. right?
    is there a way to handle that more dynamically ?
    all the best,

      Not sure to understand what you're after. You can dynamically manage your filepathes with the filepath object.

      I just want to have the folder where my patch is, inside the PATH. I'll tweak & try filepath object.
      thanks (a lot)

      Additionally, there's the filepath object, which allows you to dynamically update file preferences.

      yes jvkr I just tested it works (obviously)
      I need now to check a subfolder inside the folder where my patch is.
      I always have: /FOLDER/VIDEO
      my patch is in /FOLDER I need to grab filename in /FOLDER/VIDEO

      or just do something locally with a little hack?:

      thanks a lot for all your answers
      just that is enough for me:
      the path message to thispatcher (and I even didn't know that :-( )
