The documentation of currfile has a section entitled "stand-alone usage of currfile-abspath" which I am totally unable to understand. I cannot even decide whether or not it is relevant to what I would like to do. (But it is not a big issue at all. Mostly a matter of "elegance".)

Assuming you're using pdflatex and have included


add the line

\typeout{^^J^^JFILEPATH: \currfileabspath^^J^^J} % or \currfileabsdir

just before \end{document}.

(I assume you are using TeXShop and the pdflatexmk engine, so that there is no need to to add the -recorder option.)
