Note use of forward slashes where you (as I assume a windows user) would
expect a colon or a backslash. Note also need for to escape a space.
Other ways include:
print read to-file "/c/my briefcase/frunlog.txt"
;; the quoted string allows an embedded space
print read to-rebol-file "c:\my briefcase\frunlog.txt"
;; Uses undocumented to-rebol-file function to convert
;; from a windows file name to a rebol one
;; This code isn't so portable!!
change-dir %/c/my briefcase
print read %frunlog.txt
;; Changes directory. Useful if you
;; have several files to read or write.
Hope that helps,
