Sub-Folders?


    Mar 29 2013 | 11:31 pm
    Hy,
    I've asked this in a diff. thread, but it seems, it is far more harder than I thoughed.
    If I have a sub folder inside the main folder of the patcher, how to set the path of that sub folder?
    I would like to use tge patcher in a different place, so I need to remove the drive name for example...
    if my path :
    DRIVE / PATCH FOLDER / SUB FOLDER
    How to set to something like this :
    /SUB FOLDER
    Is it possible?
    Or I should add all of the files into my patch?

      I saw some pluggo plugins with external files, so I think it is possible...but how?

      i cant find my abstraction now, as i am not at my main computer, but it is possible to do stuff like this using the [folder] object and [strippath].
      formatting a path works likewise. you can use [regexp] or [sprintf] to just add another folder name on top.
      basically you´d use ":" where you normally would write and think "/" to describe a path in max.
      ":"   is the max app folder ":patches:subfolder:file.txt"   will get a file 2 levels deeper.
      the leading ":" is what most people forget to add and creates confusion on the first attempts.
