Assembler APP.PATH
Iam looking for something like APP.PATH in Visual Basic.
Is any way how to find "Program/App path" in Amiga assembler ?

depending on what you're trying to do, you can either use the automatic "PROGDIR:" assignment or read the "pr_HomeDir" field of your process (which you get by doing "FindTask(NULL)".

None of the above is assembler-specific, btw..

Simple steps:

1. Program starts from HDD.
2. Allocate some Chip mem.
3. Load GFX,Music,Any data from Home directory (HDD) to allocated memory.

Months ago I found sample program on some forum (French, I think), but I dont know where and still looking for it.

"PROGDIR:" sounds good but when I used it Iam requested to insert volume "PROGDIR" :confused

I dont know how to use findtask() and pr_HomeDir , but i found this:

hmm.. are you using kickstart 1.2 or 1.3? my suggestions only work on 2.0+..

also, if you aren't able to figure out how to call FindTask(), I'm afraid you will never succeed implementing all that stuff above that you call "simple steps"..
