Hi, this question has been unanswered:
How can I get the filename of the parent patch (like getdir or pwd does
for the directory of the parent patch)?
Why do I want this?
For state saving: I would like to create an abstration that saves an XML
file (with the help of pool and memento for example) in the same folder
as the parent patch. The file would have the same name except for an
appended ".xml". That way, once you reload the patch, it reads the xml
file, and voilà, your settings are restored.
What do you think about this aproach?
