It is happening that your are writing a line of code like this: type? /home /http /run /cohen /birds the "/" starts a refinement! word that ends at the next "/" where starts another refinement! word. the last refinement (/birds) is returned at the end of the evaluation: A confirm: length? [/home/http/run/cohen/birds] ;== 5 while a path like this gives: length? [home/http/run/cohen/birds] ;== 1 A path cannot start with "/". --- Ciao Romano
