I have a mathematica .m file that I am running on the command line (as well as in the IDE for debugging). I want to get the path that it is run from so that I can store output files relative to it. It seems that if I run the file from the command line that $InitialDirectory gives me what I want, but when I Right-Click Open on my desktop to view it in the Mathematica IDE, $InitialDirectory gives me something else..... It looks like there is a function called NotebookDirectory which works for .nb's, but not for .m's.... Is there any trick to do the equivalent for .m? Thanks, Jesse
