Auto-Converting Rebol filepaths to localOS formats
[1/5] from: jason::cunliffe::verizon::net at: 16-Oct-2002 0:03
Is there a snappy default way to convert Rebol style filepaths into Windows, or whatever the local systems filepath format is ? Seems like we are missing a single built-in function called "to-localOS" or even a /localOS refinement of current file and path functions
>> to-localOS %/e/JASONIC/Page1.swf
== "E:\JASONIC\Page1.swf" etc.. thanks ./Jason

You were almost there Jason. The words are...

== %root:dir/file.txt and...
>> to-rebol-file "root:dir/file.txt"
== %/root/dir/file.txt -- Carl Read
