Another newbie stumper

 [1/2] from: kpeters::vu-ware::com at: 3-Mar-2005 12:07

Hi all ~ another one has me baffled: the print statement in script below shows the proper expected filenames the write immediately below fails showing a different dest directory:
>> do %/c/city/rename.r
Script: "Untitled" (none) c/city/pdfs/short/1.pdf ** Access Error: Cannot open /c/city/c/city/pdfs/short/1.pdf ** Near: write/binary new pdf REBOL[] files: read %/c/city/pdfs/ i: 1 foreach file files[ pdf: read/binary append copy %/c/city/pdfs/ file new: replace copy %c/city/pdfs/short/@.pdf "@" i i: i + 1 print new write/binary new pdf ] What do I need to learn here? As always, thanks for any pointers, Kai

Your missing the leading slash here: new: replace copy %c/city/pdfs/short/@.pdf "@" i Make that %/c/city/pdfs/short/@.pdf and you should be good to go. leading slash indicates complete path, otherwise it uses the current directory and appends the file path to it. An alternative fix is... %pdfs/short/@.pdf HTH!! ~~Ammon ;~> On Thu, 3 Mar 2005 12:07:47 -0800, Kai Peters <[kpeters--vu-ware--com]> wrote:
