[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:
IF NOT EXISTS? drawer [ MAKE-DIR drawer ]
You might using indirect paths (sub-paths from where the program was initiated)
