RE: Experimental`FileBrowse


I tried it again and it worked.  I don't know what happened before.  It
wasn't the usual shadowing problem; I checked ??FileBrowse and found it
in the System context.

Oh, wait!  That's the problem!!

Before, I loaded the package and then used FileBrowse[].  That still
doesn't work; you have to use the qualified name, even if you've loaded
the Experimental package.

It's a little odd that System`FileBrowse exists and does nothing,
though.

Bobby,

On my 4.1, Windows 98, Experimental`FileBrowse[] brings up the Windows file
browser. After I maneuver around and select a file, I have to "Save" it.  Of
course, I don't really want to Save anything. Then I get a message saying
the file already exist and do I want to save anyway. Of course I don't, but
I answer Yes anyway. Then it returns the file path name and, in fact,
doesn't save anything. But, the method of operation does not fill one with
confidence!
