[REBOL] Re: CASTRO (was: Will this mail arrive?)

From: atruter:hih:au at: 3-Jun-2002 9:35

Actually it depends on the platform I think.
>> system/version
>> make-dir %test/
== %test/
>> write %testfile "Test" >> rename %testfile %test/testfile >> read %testfile
** Access Error: Cannot open /C/rebol/Script/testfile ** Where: halt-view ** Near: read %testfile
>> read %test/testfile
== "Test" IIRC I used it successfully on Linux too. Of course, this does not work if you are moving the file between different disks. Regards, Gabriele. </SNIP> Hey, you're write. Behaves this way on Win95 as well. I think I have always misread the help on this: USAGE: RENAME old new DESCRIPTION: Renames a file to a new name. RENAME is a function value. ARGUMENTS: old -- path to the old file (Type: file url) new -- new name (not a path) (Type: file url string) (SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES) catch as "new - new name (not containing a path)" . . . instead of, "new - new name (not a path by itself)" . . . Thanx for clearing up my confusion. Regards, Ashley
