I often put this function into my stack script to provide a simple
way to get the path to the current folder:
function getPath stackPath
set the itemDelimiter to "/"
delete first item of stackPath
delete last item of stackPath
return "/" & stackPath
Then call the function like this:
put getPath(the long name of this stack) into pathName
set the defaultFolder to getPath(the long name of this stack)
