That's wonderful!  But... err.. what was the problem?  *grin*

To tell the truth, I didn't see the actual root of the problem; did the
problem fix itself?  Oh, wait, ok, I see it now.


So it was just the rebinding of the file() builtin!  Ok, that makes sense.

Personally, I've been using open() instead of file() in my own code.  (I
like to keep my functions as verbs.)  There was some discussion in another
thread that suggests that open() is still the preferred way to do a file


Talk to you later!
