Mac OS 9 Directories?

Post by Garrett » Thu Apr 27, 2006 10:47 pm

Greetings,

In OS X I use /Users/<user name>/Library/Application Support/<my app>
as the path to save data files related to my program.

What is the appropriate directory path in OS 9? And, what would be on
OS X running the Classic emulator?

Thanks in advance,
-Garrett

Garrett, I have a list of all the "specialFolderPath" codes for Win/OSX/OS9 at: http://www.sonsothunder.com/devres/revo ... ile010.htm. This shows that the comparable folder on OS 9 is:
  • /HD/System Folder/Application Support
and can be gotten with specialFolderPath("asup"). For emulated Classic, I'd assume that it's:
  • /System Folder/Application Support
although you wouldn't be able to use specialFolderPath() to get it as there isn't a code for that folder (AFAIK).
