The notion of the current directory on a drive other than the drive containing my current directory hasn't meant anything to me in over twenty years. In fact I haven't even thought about it in that long. I recently noticed (the hard way) that at least some C and Win32 functions still respect the difference between C: and C:\ (e.g., _wfullpath and GetFullPathName). I was surprised to see (but understand): Code: v:\> echo %@truename[g:] G:\TC15 v:\> echo %@truename[g:\] G:\ I can't imagine capitalizing on that. Does anyone use this distinction to advantage?
