I decided to use a "scratch" document for something I was doing.
Because of a bug in notetab's handling of the replace function (see
prior email) the clip derailed! It got loose and left notetab and
then kept running. The destroy function (contained in a loop) just
kept on running and running and running.
Closes the current document or the specified document without
prompting and deletes the corresponding file from disk if it exists
(the file is actually sent to the recycle bin).
That got me to thinking that I should probably always do some test on
destroy before running it. First I wasn't using a file name ...
perhaps I should.
How do I get the full path/filename.ext for a file I am currently in?
I find this:
Returns the name and extension of FileName (without path). Since
version 4.8, this function works both on Windows file names and URLs.
Returns the path segment of FileName (always ends with backslash).
Since version 4.8, this function works both on Windows file names and
Do I have to combine them?
What techniques to you all use to contain your destroydoc commands?
