How to get the full path to programs folder in the simulator?

Hi,
What is the recommended way to get the full path to the programs directory from inside a URCap? We would like to implement a solution that works on the real robot and in the simulator, so we cannot hardcode “/programs” as a string.
I could use a Linux system call e.g. “pwd” but it looks like a quick and dirty hack.
Thanks

You could check if the “/programs” folder exists, if it doesn’t reroute the path to the simulator folder which by default should be “/home/ur/ursim-current/programs”.

if you want to check: realRobot / simulation

com.ur.urcap.api.domain.robot

boolean isRealRobot()
Returns:
true if controlling the real, physical robot and false if in simulation mode.

You can connect to the Dashboard Server, send the command get loaded program and extract the programs path from the returned value.
