Is `c(pwd)' what you want?

Hi Statalisters,

I was wondering if anyone  knows of a procedure that allows the user to
the current dataset in the current working directory without typing the
path, just the filename.
If we don't specify the path, the -save- command saves the file in the
default data directory. If we want to save in the current working
(different from the default directory) I believe we have to write the
complete path (which is extremely boring if we want to quick save
versions of the file after ).
I've been trying to write a ado file that enables to do just that, but I
don't know if Stata has a command that retrieves the current directory.
The objective is to write a command like this: qksave filename.
Can anyone help?
