I am using the package currfile by Martin Scharrer which superseded  
the fink package which Didier Verna deprecated in favor of currfile  
and which I used a lot.

I make very heavy use of


to label the problems used by Nicola Talbot's probsoln and also of  
\currfilebase in templates that avoid having to enter filenames by hand.

However, I have no idea how to make \currfiledir appear in the  
console. The documentation of currfile has a section entitled "stand- 
alone usage of currfile-abspath" which I am totally unable to  
understand. I cannot even decide whether or not it is relevant to what  
I would like to do. (But it is not a big issue at all. Mostly a matter  
of "elegance".)

Hopeful regards
