print read %/c/my briefcase/frunlog.txt 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, Colin.
