[REBOL] Re: creating a shortcut

From: bry:itnisk at: 31-Oct-2003 10:18

Well if you used call and redirected input couldn't you just get environment variables? There was also a registry dialect I saw once, if you used that I suppose you would be able to check the registry structure, not particularly stable a method either, but I think it's better than checking if c:\windows exists; I've worked with people who, in building programs would check if c:\winnt existed and if not create it so they could have a c:\winnt\system32 to put their dlls in and it took repeated explanations as to how to handle the problem correctly over a space of 6 months to get them to actually change their original code so as a consequence I don't believe in every checking against the existence of a folder and assuming from that what operating system one is in.
