no. a unix program's cwd is the directory that is the cwd where the

I understand this. My question was wouldn't this mean that the scsynth
binary would have to be stored in ~/Library/Application
no, you apparently don't understand. there is a difference between
where a program is executed and where it is stored.
you can execute any program in any directory by 'cd'ing to that
directory before you execute the command..
where you store the program is irrelevant as long as it is in your
shell's search path or you specify it explicitly.
Unless you're also suggesting changing the classvar program to be
"scsynth" (or "/Applications/scsynth") instead of "./scsynth"?
