[REBOL] Re: quick help please!

I won't argue that there are problems with dynamically creating paths
[from strings]. I've beat my head against the wall for some time over this
and gave up. However, I found a "work-around":
>> probe to-path rejoin ["submenu/" i "/1"]
>> probe do rejoin ["submenu/" i "/1"]
That is, leave the "path" as a string. To evaluate it, use 'do. Don't know
exactly what context this uses, though I know it works when refering only
to a global context (that is, 'submenu is defined globally).

Never try to make path! types from strings. They do not have the
right context and will not work.
