The function DIRECTORY() in Object REXX


"There is a bug in OORexx/NT which is in the GA product, but will be fixed 
in WARP 4 Fixpack #1. (according to the developers). 
The directory() function only maintains 1 drive at 1 time. e.g.:   

 
  say directory("c:\test1")      // c:\test1
  say directory("d:\test2")      // d:\test2
  say directory("C:")            // c:\   :-(
  say directory("D:")            // D:\   :-(

 This problem is NOT in the OS/2 version of Object REXX."
