Noob Picard here

  • Can I execute Picard scripts from the command line in a certain directory ?
  • Where are Picard scripts stored locally ? Can I edit and save them externally using a text editor ?

I find it annoying to edit a script, make it so, then execute it and only then seeing what my script is actually doing - I’d be helpful if someone can help me streamline the process.

Another unrelated question that has been lurking me today if anyone can help: Is it possible to edit the name of the CURRENT directory that the file I am changing the name to resides ? This has been asked before but no definite answer was provided.

Scripts are stored in the configuration file Picard.ini, I am not sure where this is stored on osx.
All scripts are in a single line of the configuration file and it does not seem to be that user friendly to edit this configuration manually.
