We have come a long way in the development of a prototype laptop diary
application, "Phenomenalog" (v.16.4.0)
It works , adding new cards to substacks,over many months of daily use
As standalone-application it also works fine,on all 4 platforms, except
for one feature: creating of (3) backups/ to a user selected folder
There is not produced a copy of the actual standalone, but a file with
.rev, which evidently is not a standalone.
No wonder, as the effective line 6 goes: "revcopy......." Even just
specifying .app as ending does not help.
I guess solution should have to do with app.path ?
Here is the relevant script-part:
put the effective filename of this stack into source
set itemdelimiter to "/"
put last item of source into sourcename
set itemdelimiter to ","
put the backuppath of this stack into destination
revcopyfile source, destination
put destination & "/" & sourcename into oldpath
put destination & "/" & "Diary" && phenodate &".rev" into newpath
rename file oldpath to newpath
put the backups of this stack into list
if the number of lines of list > 3 then
put line 1 of list into deletepath
delete line 1 of list
put return & newpath after list
set the backups of this stack to list
delete file deletepath
