[PD] clear console command + create folder from Pd?

That’s working now, Tim.

I did see already that the [loadbang] was missing.
However, working with absolute directories gets really complicated this way.

Especially if you want to have the same Patch or abstraction working on
several platforms. I would suspect this version might only work on windows

I just tested it on WinXP. I could create a directory in the folder of the
patch but not a subdirectory. Not sure if it has anything to do with the
slash vs. backslash issue.
Ah, true, I didn't think of that.
I found a workaround though (see attachment), but it's getting absurdly
complicated for just doing mkdir...

and I forgot to add a loadbang, you have to click the [symbol( connected to
[l2s] first...
