I find this of extreme interest, and in that many of the moderators here are of very accomplished skill level, and many of our apps will run in a user-space where an infantile look & feel to the GUI supports a type of user that is not interested in differentiating between a folder and a backslash [ forward slash on Unice ]

I take ALL my work to an isolated machine, on floppy - in text only - and shred the floppy after one or two transports.

I guess it is a known issue, but I cannot get out of my mind a comment in the header file that I read for a garbage collector that was intended to run on a platform where a megabyte could be thrown around for a file read buffer, then try to run my javac.exe from a cli under Win.

It is in reply to a comment made in that thread.

Correctly, since present fora are deeply insightful and remarkably responsive, it was in fact a solictation for discussion, not a reply.
