It does, but not in this case, since here StringSplit looks at strings without knowing they happen to be pathnames. The trick is to use $PathnameSeparator, which I think is there to make things like that work regardless of the underlying OS. > Of course one could merely use normal OS tools to look at what's in > those directories: one is allowed upon occasion to step outside Mathematica! actually that is what I did. On the other hand the Mathematica code snipplet is a nice way to present the information in an OS independent way, well almost independent in this case :-) albert
