ive always just done this, but i guess if you open another patch in
the meantime it might be off..
I'm sure, this is possible, for example also with "shell" and basename
etc. I'd rather like to discuss, if having to know the parent path
generally is needed, if it's a sign of a design error in a patch or if
it's a design error in Pd, not to provide this funcionality?
It's a very interesting question, which comes up regularily here.
