Getting the details right isn't easy, is it!? Just think of the number of
platforms and the versions of Rebol out there.
--I'll modify my comment by saying do the file name conversions for View
applications (and I'm sure there are exceptions there too).
-- I'll also note that (in fact checking your comment -- you are right!) I
discovered that "to-local-file" is sort of built-in even to Core -- it will
handle files in both local and neutral format. Example:
exists? join %"/" "c:rebol\core31\rebol.exe"
exists? join %"/" "c/rebol/core31/rebol.exe"
This is on a Windoze machine. I don't know if that's true on other platforms
What we really need for a useful application deployment checklist is a list
of gotchas by rebol version (such as your example) and a list of gotchas by
