Re: saving a file based on a previous path

Hey Klaus, Thanks, that worked. The first time I tried to retype it all I got the same error, but I realized I was not putting "the" before "lastSavePath". Apparently that's important.

What do you mean by the engine is programmed in C++, Objective-C or Java ? Does that mean there are three different version of the engine? If so, wh...

standalone application languages

I can find a lot of stuff saying that LiveCode compiles into executables that run on lots of different operating systems, and that it has ways of talking to lots of different languages. What I can't find is what languages LiveCode actually compiles into. What are the executables written in? For exam...
