Hi,
   In my app I run an external program which takes the name of the current document as a parameter. Is there an easy way to remove all the path information ie. c:\prodelph\doc.tex should be given as doc.tex?
Cheers.

Hi PiersBull

use the ExtractFileName function (unit SysUtils), i.e.

ExtractFileName('c:\windows\myfile.ext') returns 'myfile.ext'

hope this help
