So I create a directory using directory_create(name) easy enough and it places said new directory within the working_directory. What I can't seem to figure out is how to place the path when writing and reading to do so withing the newly created directory leaving me only to write and read within the working_directory. I realize that GS is a self contained sand box but surely there is a way to do so within folders placed in the working_directory else why be able to create said folder and destroy them. Here is my file write line file = file_text_open_write(working_directory + "\ " + "c_times_" + string(date_id) + ".txt") this looks in the working_directory for a file named c_times_[ date_id goes here ].txt I can't seem to be able to set a path that allows saving within a newly created directory within working_directory. Any ideas? I have tried some things as well as using the whole file location name but non worked so don't think it would help to list them.
