I am very much a part time user of C++ to solve particular problems and therefore a bit of a greenhorn - I am having some issues with where files are stored.
When I first start up my application the path appears to be the directory where the .exe is located. Then if I save a document using a serialize function the path changes to the my documents directory. I want to be able to tell my program where to look for things. I have come across the chdir command but all the explanations I have seen so far assume some level of inherent mastery which I dont possess.
