I have a couple of questions ... the re-direct doesnt seem to work from a
C:\Program Files\rebol\view>rebol -c batch.r | philip.txt
Intermediate file error during pipe
Changing from a | to a > will create an output file (in this case
philip.txt) with my batch file as its contents.
However if I change "philip.txt" to "command.com" it just creates a file
called command.com but doesnt execute it.
What am I doing wrong?
