Can you give a concrete example of your goal?
In your home directory, make a file named Category2.html containing any
valid html text. The example you gave in your earlier reply will be fine.
Open "http://members.shaw.ca/peasthope/#Links" and you will see three links
containing "file:*Category2". Probably the third non-blank line.
Can you open the second link, file:///~/Category2.html ? It won't open here.
But it works if copied to the clipboard and pasted into the URI window.
Copying and pasting should not be necessary. It should open with a mouse
That is, what piece of code is working on that Native Oberon but fails
The link file:Category2.html works for NO. With NO not having a
hierarchical file system it can not open file:///~/Category2.html but
opens file:Category2.html, no problem. Analogously, file:///~/Category2.html
should work for Iceweasel.
Could it be that Native Oberon works differently than Linux + FF do?
By the way, "Native Oberon" the Niklaus Wirth OS?
OK; I'm more convinced there's a fault in Iceweasel!
Nope. Just your understanding.
