I am having a problem when accessing files on a VAX from a Symbolics
(3640 and 3620). It's hard to remember the names of files and I would
like to use the *Menu of Completions* option after I type the path name.
Here is where the problem surfaces:
If I type the VMS path name (for example, after doing Control-x
Control-f in the editor)
or even just
and click right to obtain the Menu of Completions, the list
that appears in the pop-up menu is of the form
Then, a "bad device" error occurs if one of the list items is selected.
If I type the entire path name, complete with a specific file name, it
works fine and I can read the file.
Has anyone else seen this problem before? Is there a fix?
