Where to store read/write files on multi-user systems

Referring to MAC OS X I think this is fine:
> Mac OS X
> * User specific preference files (4)-
> * Shared files writable by everyone (2 and 3)- /Users/Shared/MYAPP
However, you have to set permission accordingly. As far as I know
there is not a way to set permissions from Revolution when you create a
file.... (right?) .. so you can have problems to read/write files
created by an other user.
Actually I am facing the same problem.
I wrote an application for MAC OS X and it works only for the
administrator. (I stored data in a folder placed next to the
application file into the application folder...which is not right).
When I started to plan this project I was not fully aware of this
problem. Be aware MACOS X is multi user.... so also applications
created with revolution must be Multi-user!
