Re: [Sc-devel] SC3.2 RC 3 and SC 3.2

I'm just quickly glancing at all of this... but it appears to me that it is time to make use of the good old "Preferences" menu option. As someone mentioned earlier, if these were all env vars that could be have a default (and that default appears in preferences), then a user can change them, and these can be saved to a pref file.

On Linux, I would assume that a user setting env vars shouldn't be a problem.

Windows??? Do you you have preferences there? Or maybe Steve Ballmer would be able to tell us where he thinks these must go??? :)

Then, maybe the defaults can be tuned to the operating system.

Hi all,

For the reasons Scott points out, I am agnostic about the change.

My point was that, while the change may tidy things up in relation to
OS X it  does not do anything
to make it easy to manage multiple projects in SC.  If all the OS's
(i.e., Os X , Linux and win32)
can track down the application from one of its documents and start it
up, shouldn't be possible
to pass the directory that contains that document to the app?

Right now, I end up writing little makefiles to do this.  It seems a
bit anachronistic.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but there's thisProcess.nowExecutingPath.
Is that what you need?
