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


Shouldn't we run startup.rtf if it exists at /Library/Application Support/SuperCollider/startup.rtf as well? Some sys. admins my want to do that. There are also primitives for getting app. support directories.

startupFiles {
var filename = "startup.rtf";
^[this.userAppSupportDir +/+ filename, this.systemAppSupportDir +/+ filename];

While looking into this a realized that SC isn't respecting the whole User/Local/Network/System app. support search order, it is only looking at User and System...we should probably fix that eventually.

I also strongly vote for setting the default recording dir. to something like ~/Music/SuperCollider Recordings. There is no reason we should be writing things like that into /Applications/SuperCollider. There are several applications that use ~/Music to drop sound files– Audio Hijack, Ableton Live, DSP-Quattro and Garage Band to name a few.
