how would I specify SCAR to load includes from the same folder as the Main Script is in, regardless of the location?

Right now I had trouble transporting scripts from one computer to another because I had to change all the paths!


Thanks a lot! :o

Just to give a little heads up, neither .\Include.scar or ScriptPath + Include.scar work.. :confused:

program Name;
{.include ScriptPath + Include.scar}

 PlaySound(ScriptPath + 'RandomSound.wav');


Including it that way returns an error that an Include has not been found at the specified path.

If I remove the Include files the Sound gets played without problem.


What am I doing wrong?


Edit: Of course giving it the whole path works like a charm. See above problem why this isn't optimal for me.

Hello again,


I've found that I've been wrong for not actually saving the Script into the same folder as the Include.

After having it in the same folders I can call an include with either {.include Include.scar} and {$I Include.scar}.


I reckon they do the same thing. :D

Yea you can't put functions /variables etc. in the includes {} area.


$I Filename.scar will refer you to the includes folder/script folder automatically, otherwise enter the path manually or add \ to refer to subfolders.

There is a search order it looks for includes if you don't include a path at all and just use the name of the include. Can't for the life of me remember the exact order. Think it's includes folder, scar application folder, script folder. Or something like that.

And if you really need to know you could test it by doing Test.scar and having TestProcedure; WriteLn( with different letters
