I would like to write a tool that will get the abs path, or relative path to the galaxy folder of the files created/added/imported in the user's history

How can i do that? I'm reading a ton of documentation, but most of it points to manipulating datasets in the galaxy interface, which is not what i would like

A user's history does not correspond to a directory on the disk - the files in a history could be in many different directories. The tool will only be given file paths for those datasets selected by a user - so for instance if your tool has a `data` input with `multiple="true"` - a user could then select many files and your tool could iterate over them (e.g. In general though - tools do not have direct access to histories.

when iterating over the name, how can I get the filename? or the attribute:name
Im using ${}
but this does not work

The file name or the name of the dataset? The former - the path to the file - is just ${f}. The latter - the name of the item as it appears in the history is ${}.
