Relative Paths

I use source control and develop/test my Revolution application in different IDEs (Windows, OS X, Linux, Sun Solaris, AIX).  I maintain and application/projects library directory tree similar to below. 

SRC
    TRANSCRIPT
        COMMON
            ALGO
                MATH.REV (CONTAINS EXPMOVAVG, SCALE…)
    FINANCIAL
        INDICATORS.REV (CONTAINS MACD, PTP…)
    DATABASE
        EARNINGS.REV (CONTAINS INTERFACE TO EARNINGS DB)
        HLCV.REV (CONTAINS INTERFACE TO HLCV DB)

    ANALYZER
	ANALYZER.REV (A APPLICATION)

This type of project/application/library management is common in large development projects.  The constructs of module inclusion provided in Runtime Revolution do not seem to allow this source management technique.  I realized you are quite experienced in developing products using Runtime Revolution.  I may not properly understand the construct Runtime Revolution provides I would appreciate a education if you have the time.  However, I have seen very few postings from developers involved in large projects.  My application is extremely large and requires reusable interfaces for any number of applications.  I see no simple way if implementing this with the given constructs.   


NOTE:  Every popular language C,C++,Visual Basic… has some form of file inclusion by way of relative paths.

Kevin,<br><br>Why do you need to add stacks to the stackFiles property? I've been using<br>MC/Rev for years and never needed to do this to open other stacks.

How does one create applications that can be used in the<br>> IDE on multiple platforms without relative paths.  When I add a satck file to<br>> the the stackFiles property (in the property explorer) the fully qualified<br>> path is used.  When I copy the stack to another platform the path (something<br>> like "/Users/me/src/transcript/common/xxx.rev") will not function.
