##### Getting path where a command was loaded from
« on: October 20, 2016, 09:54:29 pm »
Hi,
I want to be able to get the path for the ruby script which is the same directory from which the *.e file was loaded from. Right now, I'm forced to use an absolute path, but I want to make this a relative path. Is this possible?

Code: [Select]
`#include "slick.sh"_command void rmv_c_dev() {   if (_select_type() == "") {      select_all()   } else if (_select_type() != "LINE" && _select_type() != "BLOCK") {      // Convert it into a LINE selection      _select_type('', 'T', 'LINE');   }   // This doesn't run correctly if I don't supply the full path, I want to detect the path of this script.   _str cmd = 'ruby C:\Users\Ted\SlickEdit\MyMacros\rmv_c_dev\rmv_c_dev.rb'   _str out = filter_command(cmd);// say('cmd='cmd);}`

You can get the path for your configuration folder using _config_path().
