process-current-directory: system variable

Default value: varies

When you use a concurrent process, Epsilon stores its current directory in this variable. Setting this variable switches the concurrent process to a different current directory.

To set the variable from EEL, use the syntax process_current_directory = new value;. Don't use strcpy(), for example, to modify it.

Under Windows 95/98/ME, Epsilon only transmits current directory information to or from the process when the process prompts for input. Under Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista, EEL code scans prompts to detect the process's current directory and sets this variable; setting has no effect. Under Unix, Epsilon tries to retrieve the process's current directory whenever you access this variable, but setting it has no effect. See the variable use-process-current-directory for more details.
