[REBOL] Re: ...

From: joel:neely:fedex at: 12-Sep-2002 1:35

Hi, Anton, ... half a mo' while I reboot ...
>> list-dir %.../
** Access Error: Cannot open /home/jn/.../ ** Where: throw-on-error ** Near: list-dir %.../
>> change-dir %.../
** Access Error: Cannot open /home/jn/.../ ** Near: change-dir %.../ and the same thing happens on Mac OS/X (Core, of course). I must admit a preference for ../../ versus .../ on simple human engineering grounds: 1) it's more visually distinct (less easy to miss at a glance), 2) it's extensible. Combining those two, think about the likelihood of misreading something like ...../ versus ../../../../ (especially if .. is pronounced "parent" or "up"). -jn- Anton wrote:
