>Hello, > >Thank you for the responses. I'm still confused however (that's nothing >new!). If a variable is of type path! should it not display what it is pointing to?
Yes. But when you write 'root/sub1/sub2/word, it's not a path!, it's a lit-path!. The little preceeding tick (') makes all the difference.
>I am >suprised to have to issue do reduce [path] to get the string "a word at the end of >the path"
Nope. Just remove the tick and you're there. Regards, HY PS. You'll find this list a wonderful place to get help. Don't feel dumb, just come along with your questions, and don't bother reading all the 300 responses when they go off into something theoretical aside your question... Some of the first responses usually replies adequately.
