MEL: Current Scene File Name

Similar to the post below, today it took more than a minute or two to find this, which to me makes it warrant a post. This is useful for incremental save scripts, or anything else you may use it for.

To get the current scene file's full name:

`file -q -sn`

so...

string $currentScenePath = `file -q -sn` ;

  2. Yes, you need to rename the current file first and then save it. There is no "save as" command in MEL. Rename current file to whatever you want, then save. Weird, but that's how it's done.
