How to set the working or current directory in the notebook?
If I start sage in my directory
!pwd returns that directory. If I start a notebook though, the directory, given with
import os os.getcwd()
is a temporary directory within the
/tmp tree. And if I try to change that directory with
os.chdir("/home/me/Sage") then that change doesn't seem to "stick", in that the second time I call
os.getcwd() it gives me the
What I want to do is to run the Sage notebook in such a way that I can load files from its current working directory. I tried starting the notebook with
notebook("/home/me/Sage") but it seems to make no difference. Unless of course the results of
os are wrong.
How can I fix the working directory for use within the notebook?
