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" == true exists? join %"/" "c/rebol/core31/rebol.exe" == true 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 platform Sunanda.
