RunRev Paths Global

Hi everyone,

Im kind of puzzled how the environment handles paths. In HyperCard we had
the globals stacks, applications and documents to remember the paths we
accessed. Today, there is no mention of this in the documentation of MC,
RR2.1 and 2.5b1. 

There is the windows environment, surely a unix is the same... There's the
directory global and the path variables which give you access to this.
Neither seems satifactory a priori.

My goal is to serve a hierarchy of stacks in different folders. I want to
avoid recording where each stack is located and naturally avoiding the
poor user having to find them each time the directory variable has

Putting all the stacks in a single folder is not possible. And RR doesn't
go looking by itself...

So other than the obvious stack-to-path linking table or putting a long
list of paths into the environment variable of the OS, what other
solutions are there? 

Thanks in advance
