Remove text from end of symbol


    Feb 19 2014 | 11:12 am
    Hi there, I hope this hasn't been answered elsewhere but I cannot find a solution to the problem I'm having.
    It's a fairly simple problem. Essentially, I want to remove some text from a symbol that is obtained from sending a path message to a thispatcher object. This outputs something like:
    C:/Users/sxp823/Documents/Max/Octave/Patches
    I want to take this symbol and remove the /Patches from the end so that it becomes:
    C:/Users/sxp823/Documents/Max/Octave
    Then I want to append text to the end so that it finally becomes:
    C:/Users/sxp823/Documents/Max/Octave/Response
    I've managed to append text using the combine object, but I can't work out how to delete a bit of the text first.
    Any ideas?
