    Hi Enrico,

    Could you post some cod that shows the problem. I've just run such a program on with ooRexx 4.0.1 on Mac 10.5.8, and do not see the problem.

    You said your level was Mac OS X 1.6.2 Did you mean 10.6.2?

    Hi Enrico,

    I just tested the following program with ooRexx V4.0.1 on Mac OS 10.6.4.


    T = XRange("0","z");

    do I = 1 to 20
    X = LineOut('outfile',T);

    I got a single output file, outfile, in the current working directory, and NO file in the root directory.

    I have tested the submitted programs on both Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Leopard) and Mac OS X 10.6.4 (Snow Leopard) with ooRexx V4.0.1, and I am not able to reproduce the problem.

    thank You all for caring,
    My bad! I should have following things better
    I did not keep testing when things changed
    snow leopard has gone from 10.6.2 to 10.6.4
    and in april I pulled a new REXX svn level
    REXX-ooRexx_4.1.0(MT) 6.03 4 Apr 2010

    now the issue is not there any longer

    thank You again
