I have some custom elisp functions that need to run shell scripts using
shell-command. I would like to use a relative path to the script, e.g.:
rather than an absolute one:
But the relative path will only work if the working directory contains the script. I don't want to use an absolute path, because the path to the shell script might change. However, the shell script will always be in the same directory as the
.el file where the function is defined, so I thought I could leverage that fact, and use a relative path instead, I just can't figure out how to do it. I know that I can change the
default-directory, but I don't know how to do that without using an absolute path.
Is there a way for me to tell the function to use the directory that contains its
.el file as the
default-directory, or is there maybe a better solution?
