[REBOL] FTP Absolute Path Problem Re:(2)

From: cribbsj:oakwood at: 19-Sep-2000 15:36

Michael, thanks for the help. You are right, of course. If I ftp in from the command line, it takes me to the home directory of whoever I log in as. So, of course, Rebol will operate the same way. I'm going to try your soft-link idea. Thanks again for the help! On Mon, 18 Sep 2000, you wrote:
