Nah, not needing to find files, but need a way to select a dir I want
it to save them to, sorta like requestfile or whatever it was on the
Amiga. Something I can just drop in and it will brind up a dialog for
selecting a dir. Not found much throught google or anything...
probally just going to write a little py script to take care of it.
Thanks any ways.
