[PD] declare path OSX; and space

I'd hadn't seen a reply on either of these so thought I would send my solution (having just worked it out!). The issue with declare, -stdpath and OSX is that declare takes the path from the executable inside the Pd application (folder) (right click how package contents > contents > MacOS - so when trying to a position relative using you need go up a couple of directories.

e.g. declare -stdpath ../../../..//Users/someuser/Documents/OtherLocation

This gets you back from Pd in the applications folder to the user folder.

Also, I haven't seen a solution but would be curious to find out if anyone knew of a solution to path name spaces with declare in OSX.

Best wishes
