Does anyone know offhand how I might go about determining "where I am" in the directory structure? (i.e. determine C4D's root directory as installed on a machine?

I looked through the docs and am leaning toward the usage of GetFile of the likes, but thought I would fish for some possible alternatives 🙂

D'Oh! I guess I get to answer my own question. It appears that the SDK assumes it's in the root (obvious to me now :-)) ... so I can use something like:

  
Bool MyClass::resourceExists()  
{  
     String iconFile = "res/icon.tif";  
  
     // determine if the file exists  
     return (GeFExist(iconFile, FALSE));  
}  

to determine if a file needed is part of the plugin install, for example.

Carry on, nothing to see here 😕
