Numpty numpty numpty numpty numpty numpty num....

Oh, don't mind me, I'm just numptying about.

Here's an experiment for you. Don't worry about the quote marks, don't enter them, they are only in what follows to emphasise what I'm doing.

. Make a new drawer somewhere on your Amiga, and call it "Testing" (I made one in the root of DH0: )
. Open the C drawer
. Select "List"
. Choose the menu option Icons/Copy
. The system will make Copy_of_List
. Drag Copy_of_List into Testing
. Select it and choose Icons/Rename and call it "dir" instead
. Open a Shell and make sure you are in the root of the drive
. Type "dir testing"
. You will see the output from Dir...
. Type "testing"
. Now type "dir"
. You will see the output from List...
. Type "/"
. Type "dir testing"
. You will see the output from Dir...

Hmmm...

If you want to see why this happens, type "path" into the Shell.
