Strip path: how to get a directory from a file path variable in JMP script
Dec 7, 2016 10:57 AM(5655 views)
I would like to get the directory from a file path variable in my JMP script.
I'm opening a data file and want to save the analysis results in the same folder that the file is in.
I've found a clunky solution, but was hoping there was a more elegant solution for this.
Here's my current code:
// Choose the directory that has the test data.
EMfile = Pick File("Select the file containing the EM summary table.");
// The next code is a clumsy way to get the directory of EMfile, but it works.
a = 1;
b = 1;
while (a != 0,
b = a+1;
a = munger(EMfile, b, "/");
file_dir = munger(EMfile, 0, b);
