Read problem

 [1/4] from: lpeters:tulane at: 18-May-2005 16:26

I run the program below rebol[] file: ask "name " text: read/binary file replace text "/cs/conn" "rebol" write file text and get the following name %new.htm ** Script Error: read expected source argument of type: file url object block ** Where: do-boot ** Near: text: read/binary file replace text
If I hard code the file in, it runs fine. If I try to get the same name file from the screen, it blows up. Does anyone see my error. Thank for any help.

Lee, Here's from a rebol console session:
>> type? ask "name "
name filename == string!
>> type? to-file ask "name "
name filename == file! all you need is 'to-file. HY Dixit Lee Peters (23.26 18.05.2005):
