RE: st: sysdir set for do-files or datasets ?
Your point is well taken, but mind you, when the directories are not
adjacent on the path, changing from:
. c MH
C:\Documents and Settings\Buzz Burhans\My Documents\Active 6
Is a LOT of typing moving from parent to child etc.

I can change to a parent directory in
. cd ..
and to a child directory by
. cd other
and to another subdirectory in the same
. cd ..\another
. cd ../another
This is a little more typing than -c-, which
is where the latter clearly scores, but it
is a lot less than typing out the fullnames
(or doing it through WIMP). The idea of
going up a level of the tree, down a
level of the tree, etc. is also a pleasant
reminder of our forebears' arboreal existence.
