I am reading in an external data file using i_file = fileopen (“c:dataamt.dat”, linemode!,read!)
fileread (i_file, filelines) fileclose (i_file)
How would you avoid hardcoding the data file so that at program start-up, it would pull the files from the default path installation?
You can use the following API call to work out the current path:
Function ulong GetCurrentDirectoryA (ulong textlen, ref string dirtext) library "KERNEL32.DLL"
Then call the API call with PowerScript like:
String ls_DirIF ienv_ENV.win16 THEN RETURN ""ls_dir = Space( 255 )GetCurrentDirectoryA( 255, ls_dir )IF Len( ls_dir ) > 1 AND Right( ls_Dir , 1 ) <> "" THEN ls_Dir += ""RETURN ls_Dir
