[REBOL] Re: bug: to-file ""

That's an odd little find. It seems to hover between being the current directory, a bad file name, and the root directory name. Try these:
>> probe info? to-file ""
make object! [ size: 0 date: 8-Mar-2002/23:03:34 type: 'directory ] ;; so it's a directory (with creation info same as my current directory). But:
>> list-dir to-file ""
** Access Error: Cannot open /D/Rebol/ ** Where: throw-on-error ** Near: list-dir to-file "" ;; no it isn't. But:
>> change-dir to-file ""
== %/D/Rebol/ ;; Yes it is: it is my current/working directory after all. But:
>> list-dir dirize to-file ""
/a/ /c/ /d/ /e/ /f/ /g/ /h/ /z/ ;; it is all my drives. A case for feedback? Sunanda.
