Is there a way to set the path in the $INCLUDE to find a file on a network?.

I am small office running Mac's no server just linked computers.

You should be able to use any mounted disk just like any other folder. The trick is to make sure you have the correct path. Something like:

Does this mean the disk must be mounted first?.

Can you clarify.


Volume:= The_computer_Name;

That_Mounted_Disk := The_Disk_Name;

This\Folder\Here\VS_Stuff.px := The_Folder_Path;

In OSX (at least recent versions), all disks (other than the startup disk) are listed as being in a "virtual" folder called Volumes.

So if I have a folder named Files_to_swap that is sitting on a disk on a different computer on the network that is mounted as SharedFiles, the actual path to the folder is:


The / at the very beginning tells the search to start at the root level of the directory tree.

Note that I used the wrong slashes in my earlier post. The ones in this post are correct.


/Volumes:= the directory where remote disks are mounted on your machine

/That_Mounted_Disk:= the name of the remote disk is mounted as

/This/Folder/Here/VS_Stuff.ps:=The folder path on the remote disk.
