Yes, I need to store preferences for an application on any of the Mac OS
This application is a single user standalone application.
So I would need to know the path and filename extension for this preferences
On Windows, I would typically put this preferences file in the same folder
as the executable.
Would I assume the same on Mac?
Filename: appname.??? --this is where I need the correct filename extension
for the Mac OS.
