[REBOL] Re: Making a new dir

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 27-Jun-2001 16:35

The root path in a PC (windows box) kinda fixed, example:
>> change-dir %/ list-dir
/a/ /c/ /d/ /l/ /m/ /p/ /s/ /w/ /x/ /y/
These correspond generally to hardware drive letters and network shares. Directories cannot be made here. I guess a rough equivelent would be: drawer: %/c/TSE-Data IF NOT EXISTS? drawer [ MAKE-DIR drawer ] You might using indirect paths (sub-paths from where the program was initiated) instead. --Ryan Donald Dalley wrote:
