correction: I _am_ using /Command/View
I do get them confused all the time, since it is hard to detect the
difference between /View and /Command unless one is usign the extra
features. Yes there is boot list of extra /Comamnd functions, but that soon
recedes into sheel history.
The fact your are having trouble too makes me less paranoid.. One of the
most annoying things is the way it blindly creates the REBOL family of
sub-folders. Not only is this an ironic waste of space [Rebol is rightly
proud of its small footprint], but it @#$! confusing, espxecially to
beginners. It also represents a big security threat on a server, where one
might unintentioanlly end up with core executables in exposed places!
I guess an antidote could be to write a little %sniff-rebol.r script to do
routine cleanup of thus bug/feature. If it is a feature I wish there was
decent README on it. It is really my #1 concern about distibuting REBOL/View
programs to end-users, until I underatndn adn can control/prevent this
accidental behaviour. If it is only a /Command/View problem, then I am less
Any ideas how to clear this mess up?
Is it only a Windoze effect?
