Which brought me to another question; is there any way currently to
do a 'cd' or 'pwd' in pd?
Since your already on the external path you could use [getdir] from
but this has the same problem of openpanel and savepaned; it gives
you the path that pd was opened from.
[cd /home/full/path/to/patch (
doesn't seem to do anything, and would be a workaround if it did.
When using a [shell] object you'd really wanna run a script. Since
it's a new shell that's opened each time you query it.
So when you do [cd /to/som/dir(/[shell] and then after wards to [pwd(/
[shell] then you'r no longer cd'ed to /to/some/dir but get the root
dir. You can make a simple shell-script that both cd and pwd and then
run that script. That is if you want to use a [shell] object.
